The GOODS from Hawksworth

Vancouver, BC | Hawksworth Restaurant is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Stewart as Chef de Cuisine. Having worked in some of the world’s most well-known kitchens, Stewart brings with him an Eastern Canadian outlook and European flare. Stewart grew up in New Brunswick and the call of the ocean brought him out to Vancouver in 2016, following a five-year stint in the Okanagan as the Executive Chef at Mission Hill Family Estate.

“We are thrilled to have Stewart join the kitchen team at Hawksworth Restaurant,” says Chef David Hawksworth. “His extensive European experience is a great addition to the team, and his passion for showcasing the seasons through his dishes aligns perfectly with what our Hawksworth brand is all about.”

Stewart graduated from one of Canada’s most esteemed cooking schools, Prince Edward Island’s Holland College, in 2001. He then went on to hone his skills through stages at the Auberge du Pommier in Toronto, as well as Thomas Keller’s French Laundry and Bouchon Bistro in California. Returning home to Canada, he was appointed as the Chef de Cuisine at Rimrock Resort Hotel’s Five Diamond Eden Restaurant in Banff. Relocating to the UK in 2009, Stewart began his tenure with Heston Blumenthal at the renowned three Michelin starred Fat Duck in Bray. Named ‘Best Restaurant in the World’ for two consecutive years, Blumenthal’s restaurant – and his innovative pursuit of culinary perfection – provided Chris with a fantastic experience. A highlight during his time in Britain was his selection as a member of the culinary team that cooked for Queen Elizabeth II at her private birthday dinner at Windsor Castle.

“I am excited to join such a dedicated team at Hawksworth and I hope I can bring my unique energy to the restaurant’s front-line,” says Stewart. “It’s great to be part of a concept that emphasizes fresh, seasonal produce while demonstrating highly skilled techniques in the dishes.”
