A fourth-generation chef and restaurateur, Chef Chris Lam has worked in the industry for more than 12 years. After graduating from the Culinary Program at Vancouver Community College, he went on to hone his gastronomic talents at the original Provence Mediterranean Grill in Point Grey, quickly working his way up the ranks to become Executive Sous Chef at the award-winning restaurant. The talented young chef also worked in the kitchen at the Westin Bayshore during the 2010 Winter Olympics and more recently served as a Sous Chef at Gastown favourite Nuba.
