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.
