ANDREW MORRISON | Editor
Andrew Morrison was born in Vancouver then schooled, raised, and rumpled in Toronto and Victoria before moving to South Africa to study history and classics at the University of Cape Town. After further study in similar fields at the University of Toronto, he married and started a successful career as a breeder of fine sons. He returned to Vancouver with his young family in 2002.
Between, during, after and instead of going to school, Andrew did prep, washed dishes, bussed tables, served and managed in restaurants for almost 20 years before becoming the restaurant critic at the Westender (2005-2012). In addition to his daily oversight of Scout Magazine, Andrew contributes to Western Living, Condé Nast Traveller, Monocle, Vancouver, enRoute and Harry magazines, as well as the annual Vancouver Magazine Eating & Drinking Guide. He is the editor of the award-winning Vancouver Cooks cookbook (2010), the Senior Judge at the Gold Medal Plates cooking competition, the National Referee and BC Judge at the annual Canadian Culinary Championships, and a few other things besides. Andrew’s recent collaboration with Tofino chef Lisa Ahier and Random House will result in The Sobo Cookbook, due on shelves in early 2014.
He lives and works in Strathcona with his wife and two kids, Jack and Pip.
