Get to know me better
I'm a calm, pleasant, helpful and hardworking individual who has a passion for great food and who enjoys cooking.
This is Chef Maryam. I accomplished as a red seal chef and member of WACS, CCFCC, and BC Chefs' Association. I have a passion for great food and I enjoy cooking, baking, and intimately familiar with all the activities of the kitchen. Food is the core of everything that I do, and I want to share that passion with anyone. I make all my breads, crackers, gnocchi, sauces, spices, my condiments (organic yogurt, ricotta cheese, mayo, chutneys, etc) from scratch.
I got the culinary art degree from the VCC in 2013 and worked as a chef in Glowbal Group Restaurants ( Black+Blue, Glowbal, Coast, and Italian Kitchen) in Vancouver. I continued my career as a chef de parti at Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver, River Rock Hotel in Richmond, and as a sous chef at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

Chef Maryam was phenomenal. A perfect experience all around and would absolutely recommend her. Chef Maryam made it effortless for me to entertain our guests and made our evening very enjoyable. Her menu was on point as well as her execution of her menu. The best part is how smooth and easy it was for us. Absolutely will be hiring her in the future.

Chef Maryam was everything we hoped for, she was engaging, professional, considerate and very friendly demeanour. We had great conversation while in between courses and certainly she was flexible in her course selection prior to finalizing the menu. We loved her story in how she became a chef , her experiences in 5 star restaurants and hotels certainly shows in the quality of presentation and taste of her food. I would not hesitate to recommend Maryam for large or small groups , ours was intimate couples meal presented perfectly.
