Dynamic Duo

Victor is a real force in the kitchen, but you wouldn’t think that from looking at his Teddy Bear appearance. He’s a control freak who obsesses over both process and product. He won’t stand for subpar cuisine and believes in taking everything to the next level. Up north, he’ll remain true to his prerogatives and uncover nearby quality food sources, and the hidden gems of cottage country, to design new, specialty menu items. He’ll exchange tips and tricks with local foodies and farmers.  


Rebecca, event planner extraordinaire, will inject some new life into these dining rooms and the people working in them. She’ll set the mood with an atmosphere to match Victor’s stellar cuisine. With her eye on everything, from service to silverware, she’ll make sure the entire experience lives up to Victor’s menu. Rebecca has a sweet, yet stern, approach and wants things to go her way. If she can dream it, it has to happen. Used to attracting bees with honey, she’ll barter and bargain and up-cycle trash into treasure, to create the ultimate dining ambience. With each INNvasion, Victor and Rebecca will breathe new life into a tired menu and space, to create the ultimate cottage dining experience!
