Top Chef Canada contestant Jimmy Stewart.

 

Jimmy Stewart, Bearfoot Bistro, Whistler, British Columbia

Top Chef Canada contestant Jimmy Stewart is the sous chef at the Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler, British Columbia. After acquiring a basic culinary degree in Vancouver five years ago, at age 18, Jimmy pushed his way into some of the city’s best restaurants to eventually find a spot at Lumiere and meet his biggest culinary influence, Dale MacKay, winner of Top Chef Canada season one.

Jimmy spent a year in Gordon Ramsay’s MAZE and the Ledbury in London, England, and then a year in Toronto at Colborne Lane and Origin, eventually making his way back out west. With strong beliefs in foraging and a love for Canadian products and ingredients, he is driven by modern Canadian cuisine.
