Ingredients are a gateway into Cultures & history. I want to share the keys to these gates through Food, Experiences, Learning, and meeting new faces.
My name is Kwin marion. I'm a shameless food nerd from Canada currently living in Calgary, Alberta. You can book me via my personal website at www.kwintessentialcooking.ca
I have dedicated almost 10 years of my life to the experience of sharing a great meal with others and as of 2021 I will be a certified Red Seal Journeymen Chef. From casual eats to Michelin starred Restaurants, I understand what it means for a guest to receive a great meal & a memorable experience, I started cooking as young as I can remember baking pretzels with my mother. When I turned 16 I began my life in the Cooking Industry within Canada. By 20 I worked in Mexican, French, & Australian Steakhouse settings achieving a position in Kitchen management. Then, I chose to travel to Lake Louise, Alberta; one of North Americas Greatest Hotel's "Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise" To begin My Apprenticeship. Cooking for guests & chefs with the highest of expectations with innumerable challenges helped me build skills & mindsets that established the foundation for my career. By the age of 24 I worked in over 10 different outlets in a traditional French setting serving thousands of guests a week Achieving a leadership role in banquet settings. I then decided to take my experiences internationally and spent over 3 months in Thailand training in South East Asian Cuisine. I was lucky enough to work at "Gaggan" in 2019. A 2 Michelin starred restaurant that serves a 25 course multi sensory chefs tasting menu & holds awards such as #1 Restarunt in Asia for years running and #4 world wide in 2019. This set my passion on fire and pushed me to the next level. I now work & live in Calgary, Alberta. I spent some time at the popular River Cafe. Being one of Canadas best restaurants for years running, its a hidden gem for eager cooks. Here I focused on making EVERY product from scratch, creating almost 100% locally sourced Canadian dishes, and harvesting from our garden while learning the value of good produce & eating through the industry leading sustainable approaches taken every day. Fast forward to today where I learn along side Chef Darren Maclean the restaurant EIGHT, and exclusive 15 course fine dining locations leading Calgarys escalated food scene. While the learning never stops I seek my true calling which brings me to YOU.
I want to share all I learned and all I can with you and your loved ones or associates in your own home. Bringing my stories and adventures along with a truly unique and personalized event I hope to share a great meal with you some day, at the table or from the kitchen. Whatever menu you need, we can make it happen.
