” Chef Alessandro was an absolute pleasure to work with. Our team worked with him on a consultation project for the Columbia Diner in Kamloops and his thoughtful menu planning and implementation all contributed to the successful rebrand and helped us bring something new and unique to the Kamloops market.

” Chef Alessandro Vianello was the creative on our food menu development and finalized menu for our new concept Mahony’s Tavern. Chef was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and I look forward to consulting with him and working with him further in the future as we continue to evolve our Mahony’s Tavern menus. His commitment, passion and enthusiasm to the menu and concept vison that I articulated to him was evident right from the beginning of the project. His ability to listen and to understand that vision and then to build a menu around that was outstanding. Working with our chefs in each location and our FOH leadership teams was seamless and the process was fun and engaging for all involved.
I could not be more proud of the Mahony’s Tavern menu we created. It has fit our new concept and brand perfectly and has provided an amazing food program platform for our company moving forward. Chef Alessandro was the driving force behind this menu creation and I am grateful of his tireless commitment to getting it “right!.” I look forward to working with chef Alessandro for hopefully many many years moving forward for our menu development at Mahony’s Tavern! “
