MEET OUR CHEF
Chef Tse has a simple philosophy; local is better. His belief in supporting neighbouring businesses as well as using locally sourced ingredients is the foundation of his strong relationships with many purveyors such as; Sole Food Street Farms, D-Original Sausage, Albion Fisheries and Monte Cristo Bakery. Chef Tse has created menu offering a wide range of local products, such as sustainable seafood, fresh vegetables grown mere blocks away, to many proteins from the Fraser Valley.
Born in the United Kingdom, Chef Tse moved to Toronto at a young age where he started to absorb the international cultures and global flavors of the city. Moving to BC to pursue his formal training, Chef Tse has worked for some of the city’s top hotels and restaurants. Working alongside some of Vancouver’s top restaurateur’s, Chef Tse opened a West Coast restaurant with Pacific Rim flavors called Goldfish Pacific Kitchen. He thrived as the chef and managing partner there for 4 years. Moving his career in a slightly different direction, Chef Tse spent the last few years in one of Vancouver’s top restaurants where he continued his passion for local and sustainable ingredients.
Chef Tse has competed in a number of culinary competitions locally; in 2013 Chef Tse was crowned BC Chef of the Year, BC Chinese Chef of the Year, BC Master Chef and BC Asian Chef of the Year and placed third in the National Chef Challenge.
The love for food keeps this award winning chef grounded. His enthusiasm and his knowledge of cooking techniques combined with his vision on using local and fresh ingredients has created a unique dining experience
