Fabian Geppert

Fabian Geppert_Imbizan

Born and raised in Germany, Fabian Geppert started his culinary journey at the young age of 16. Receiving a traditional German culinary education, Fabian spent a large majority of this time cooking in restaurant kitchens, learning from professionals. Upon graduating school, he lived Berlin and Spain, working at Michelin-star restaurants, Restaurant VAU, First Floor Restaurant and Tristan.

Feeling the need to experience the culinary world, Fabian travelled South Africa, Southeast Asia and Canada, where he worked at Rob Clark’s Vancouver restaurant, C, and Four Seasons Whistler during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Before leaving Canada, Fabian travelled across the country to write “The Great Canada Food Trip” – a feat that he called extremely eye-opening and influential.

Upon returning home to Germany, Fabian opened his own food truck, Imbizan, in 2012. Pulling from his world-wide experience, Fabian strives to provide gourmet, fast, house-made food. Knowing that presentation is key to culinary success, Fabian and his team at Imbizan ensure beautiful, visually appealing food, and have worked hard to create a growlingly recognizable design.

Jamie Smye

Jamie Smye

With over 35 years of experience in the foodservice industry, Jamie Smye has been through it all. From Executive Chef to Food & Beverage Executive, he has a broad range of experiences and flavours to draw from. Eventually drawn to the restaurateur business, Jamie ran the successful Madison’s Grill in Steady Brook, Newfoundland for three years.

Drawn to fantastic local growers and purveyors found in the Annapolis Valley, Jamie and his partner, Liisa Sellors, made the tough decision to close Madison’s Grill and move to the valley to open Privet House Restaurant. Located in the heart of Wolfville in the former Acton’s location, Privet House offers exciting Canadian cuisine in a chic, yet relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to the warm embrace of the community, Jamie and Liisa are proud to call Wolfville “home”.
