Stay & Eat
I have always had a love and passion for cooking and making people happy through food, and want to share that with each guest. I believe that appreciation for ingredients and their producers make an exciting, immersive, and place-based culinary experience. That’s why celebrating fresh, local, and seasonal product and respecting their origin is my culinary priority. I want to make guests excited about not just a culinary experience, but one unique to my neck of the woods on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Whether it’s a casual family style dinner at home, canapes for a business meeting, or multi-course Chef's tasting menu for a special event, I will bring the best of the coast curated to the season and your taste.
-Chef Martin Dean
Chef Martin served as Sous Chef at the award winning Wolf in the Fog restaurant in Tofino under Chef Nick Nutting for the past seven years, including leading the catering team for weddings and special events.
Martin located to Tofino over a decade ago to work as Sous Chef at the Wickaninnish Inn, where he learned the craft of curating beautiful coastal cuisine, and coordinated culinary programs for weddings and esteemed private events.
Prior to his Tofino move, Chef Martin completed his degree at The Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, California. He had the privilege to work in the three Michelin Star kitchen of The Restaurant at Meadowood. Upon heading back to his hometown of Vancouver, Martin then worked with Chef Dale MacKay at his Top Chef Canada opening restaurant Ensemble, an incredible way to forward Martin’s skills in savoury, but also sweet, Canadian cuisine.
