“My love for food all started with my mom. Growing up in Filipino culture, cooking is always a big part of being with family. I still remember, whenever we had family gatherings, my mom getting up early and cooking all day, with me just watching her and thinking, “wow, one day I want to be able to cook just like her”.
Living in Toronto, straight out of High School, I started working in Kitchens. With no Culinary experience I was fortunate to learn from some great chefs and work at some of Toronto’s best restaurants, like Auberge du Pommier, Buca Yorkville and Alo Bar.
Now, with over 16 years of experience, I am Executive Chef of the Restaurant at Phantom Creek Estates, where we focus on collaborating with farmers in the valley to bring hyper-local ingredients to our menu.
My philosophy for food is simple: I incorporate French cooking techniques to punctuate the story the ingredients are telling.”
The rugged and untamed nature of the South Okanagan is one that pushes the boundaries for wine growing but produces wines of incredible character. The Founder’s Cellar Experience is our tribute to this special land that we call home.
Immerse yourself in this captivating venue that showcases our history, terroir, sustainable farming practices and winemaking philosophy. Created with immense precision and love, this is a celebration of the landscape that surrounds us, the rugged and untamed nature of the South Okanagan.
