Our Executive Chef ~ Juliette Steele

We are proud of our Executive Chef Juliette Steele and her passion and commitment in the creation of exciting menu items to delight the senses of your guests. In years to come, they'll still be talking about the delicious food at your wedding!

Juliette's passion for cooking began when she worked for Michelin-starred award-winning chef David Adlard in his namesake restaurant in Norwich, England.

Growing from that position, Juliette fostered her entrepreneurial spirit when then she co-owned and operated a four-hundred year old pub in Norwich city's center.  There, she enchanted her customers with traditional French and English cuisine while she received formal training at Norwich City College and Hotel School as a professional chef. 

Returning to Canada in 1999, Juliette made her home in Burlington where she owned a café and successful catering business and then brought her talents to West Plains Bistro. Through the years, Juliette has won numerous awards for featured menu items such at her scrumptious quiche and multiple first-place finishes at SoupFest for her delicious liquid fusions.

At The Burlington Golf and Country Club since 2008, Juliette continually strives to deliver the best quality possible to members and guests.  Juliette and the Club share the common goal to have most items on the menu created from scratch with the freshest and local (when possible) ingredients.  This process can be challenging and Juliette works very hard to keep up with the demand.  

Juliette insists upon the best quality from all suppliers and the resulting winning relationships ensure that the Club's high standards are maintained. Fresh produce is delivered daily, always local when possible, with the food supplier only a few city blocks away ensuring quality and freshness.  As both delicious dining room and banquet items are made from scratch, the club kitchen is a non-stop hub of preparation from morning to night! Each plate is prepared to delight the senses of each guest, prepared fresh with individual attention and that comes through in the flavour.

"July 27,2013 was our perfect day. Together with our families and friends we celebrated our marriage at The Burlington Golf & Country Club. Everything went perfectly thanks to all of the planning and detail put into our day on their end (especially Jacquie's)! The food was so amazing and accommodating, as I have a gluten allergy, so our entire meal was made gluten free. The Leek & Potato soup was the best I have ever had, followed by a fresh salad and beef and chicken with potatoes and vegetables. Our dessert was a kiwi meringue and exceeded ours and our guests expectations. Thank you for providing a wonderful venue, meal and service! "
