From coast to coast to coast, across the breadth of our great country, Ernest’s dining room at NAIT (or NAIT Culinary) has been influenced by many great chefs. From Michael Stadtlander to Rod Butters to Jeremy Charles, these Chefs in Residence share in a single vision…the unshakable belief that one should celebrate all that is grown, harvested, or bountiful from where you live. Ernest’s shares in this philosophy and passes those beliefs onto each student that graces our kitchen. Help us eat, learn, and celebrate the food artisans, the farmers, the ranchers, the fishermen, and our students!
