When chef Gordon Ramsay declares something the best, you listen. And he's right: Araxi’s combination of local produce and an incredible natural setting are surpassed by few. From its front door is a view of Whistler Village and two of the highest skiable peaks in North America, a site of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The prize for winner of Hell's Kitchen season 6 is title of Head Chef at Araxi; where he or she will work with Chef James Walt. Highlighting Whistler’s two distinct seasons — summer and winter — the Araxi cookbook shows off the flavors of the Pacific Northwest with recipes such as Grilled Asparagus Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette and a Crispy Egg; Miso-Crusted Sablefish with Smoked Tuna Broth and Soba Noodles; and Chocolate Caramel Pots de Crème with Milk Chocolate–Almond Biscotti. A harvest menu features dishes using only ingredients grown or raised within 100 miles of the restaurant.
