Get to know me better
A passionate, calm and resourceful Chef.
Born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario Chef Kyle Gerrard fell in love with food as a teenager on weekly dinner trips to Ottawa’s Little Italy with his father. After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in 2008, he moved to Vancouver to immerse himself in this city’s fine dining scene. The journey began as an unpaid apprentice under former Michelin starred chefs at some of Vancouver’s finest venues including Lumiere, Le Crocodile and Araxi in Whistler. He accepted the first paid position at the 4 diamond, Relais and Chateaux venue Bacchus at the Wedgewood Hotel. For the following three years, the young cook progressed through the ranks at such famous venues as 1892 the private dining lounge at the Terminal City Club and the 4 diamond Fairview at Chateaux Lake Louise. In 2011, he accepted an offer to return to Ottawa to cook with a small team of accomplished chefs from around the country in the Prime Minister’s private dining quarters at the House of Commons.
After brief head chef stints at Ottawa’s Divino wine studio and Napo, our Chef realized that his heart remained in the catering world and working as a personal chef. He decided to incorporate a love for travel and cooking and set off to explore the world working as a private chef on chartered super yachts and villas. Chef Kyle continued to work as a personal chef in homes and Villas providing personalized private dining, catering to those keen on experiencing a unique take on local cuisine, wherever local may be. 40 countries and hundreds of satisfied clients later, he decided to return to Vancouver to share his food in the city where he fell in love with gastronomy. Sharing great food, sourcing sustainability, and building community.

A role model in the kitchen is...
