Chef Curtis Luk Cooks Up Chinese Feast at Edible Canada.
If you’ve eaten at Fable, Bambudda or Mission (in the running for the top new restaurant in Canada btw), you’ve likely sampled Chef Curtis Luk’s culinary creativity. We love Mission for the drinks and the tasting menus and are lucky to have it in handily in our neighbourhood. On September 19th you can catch Chef Luk cooking up a Chinese Feast at Edible Canada.
Chef Luk was Born in Hong Kong and raised in Toronto, and discovered his love for cooking while studying at the University of Waterloo. After graduating, he decided to make his ambitions a reality and entered head-first into the restaurant industry by washing dishes at some of top restaurants in town.
Following jobs at acclaimed Canadian restaurants such as George in Toronto and Atelier in Ottawa, Curtis fulfilled a long-time goal and competed on Top Chef Canada, where he met Chef Trevor Bird. Drawn by the potential of ingredients on the west coast, Curtis helped Trevor open Fable Restaurant in Kitsilano after the show aired.
After Fable, Curtis went on to head the kitchens of The Parker and Bambudda before realizing his idea of a west coast-focused restaurant that specializes in seasonally changing tasting menus, where he now resides as chef and business partner with sommelier Chase MacLeod. The stunning space at Mission Kits fits in with his vision perfectly!
