The Inn at the Forks has named Alex Svenne as their new executive chef.
Known as Chef Alex, Svenne will be responsible for all culinary operations, including banquet and catering facilities, room service and a new casual fine dining restaurant scheduled to open in early September.
Chef Alex crafted his culinary skills cooking at the popular Osborne Village restaurant Tap & Grill, while also working at Green Gates and Pasta la Vista, before becoming executive chef of Pine Ridge Hollow. Alex was also the co-owner of Bistro 7 ¼ with his wife, Danielle.
