Meet The Chef
I started out in the food and beverage industry at the young age of 14, as a dishwasher and prep cook out on Canada’s west coast. I soon realize that I wanted to build a career in the industry. I returned to my home town of Toronto to complete my education at George Brown Culinary Institute.
Upon completion of schooling I worked for the Oliver Bonacini group in Toronto, spending 4 years within their restaurants. Recruited by Coast Hotels and Resorts, I headed back out west ending up in Nanaimo for a period of 6 years, where we lead a great culinary team in a five star restaurant. In 2009 I then traveled to Victoria, BC where I lead a culinary team at Pescatores, arguably the city’s most prestigious seafood restaurant.
In 2020, after 27 years in restaurants, hotels and resorts, I launched Chefs Course, Vancouver Islands in house private Chef experience. I continuously draw inspiration from all around. October 2022 lead me back to Paris, France where I spent some time at Le Cordon Bleu, a prestigious culinary school, fine tunning some learnt skills. From independent restaurants to large resorts and new restaurant launches, I bring over 25 years of culinary experience.
Other then the obvious passion for cooking and creating, I try to instill a love of family, tradition and the outdoors into food preparations.
"I've been having an affair with food for a long time now...Bringing friends and family together through expression is one of the greatest joys. Food is the one element that allows us to connect regardless of difference...."

what others are saying...
Luke was an incredible addition to our 2-day gathering! He prepared 3 outstanding meals for our group of 9, including a 5-course dinner that was perfect in every way. Every dish was thoughtful, creative and beautiful - we were continually blown away by what was prepared. Luke's relaxed manner, positive energy and incredible professionalism made such a huge difference in our fully-packed days! Thanks again Luke and Sarah!
