SOUS CHEF, WEST RESTAURANT, VANCOUVER, BC
Vancouverite Alex Hon has been an integral part of the West kitchen brigade for seven years, carefully honing his skills in concert with Executive Chef Quang Dang. A graduate of the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts (PICA), Alex’s recent crowning as the 2016 Hawksworth Young Chefs Scholarship Foundation winner is a testament to his talents and skills as the next generation of culinary professionals.
As a leader of the team at West, Alex is devoted to using the most sustainable products possible and is also keenly aware of the importance of developing ongoing relationships with local purveyors. In fact it is his intuitive sense of local and seasonal ingredients, and their preparation, that earned him the position of Sous Chef several years ago.
