Private Chef Services for all Occasions
Growing up in Northern BC with a 1 acre family garden growing fruits and vegetables inspired a lifelong love of cooking. After dedicating himself to that love for over 18 years in some of the fanciest and trendiest restaurants in Vancouver, John has moved to the Sunshine Coast for a more sustainable lifestyle. Whether it be tasty healthy grub to fuel downhill mountain bikers at the new Coast Gravity Park or a fine dining experience at the Pointhouse, John’s food is always a treat.
I thrive off using healthy and local ingredients and take great pride in creating exciting food time after time. I enjoy creating a custom menu to pair well with your event.
Seasonally changing menus reflect the best ingredients and flavours
