    About the Chef

    Chef Dan Marcenko is currently Executive Chef for two fine dining establishments on Vancouver's West side, La Buca, creating handmade regional Italian specialties and Pied--Terre, serving classic

    French bistro-style cuisine. Originally hailing from Red Deer, Alberta, Dan began at the bottom of the restaurant ladder as a

    dishwasher in a local Italian restaurant. Management soon recognized his work ethic and enthusiasm, teaching him to prepare food and ultimately putting him in charge of a station as a line cook.

    In order to further develop his skills, Dan embarked on the three year culinary arts program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, graduating at the top of his class. To broaden his experience

    he then spent a year with Chef Pierre Orsi at his Michelin starred restaurant in Lyon, France. Dan is an enthusiastic supporter of the Canadian military and is honoured to be preparing this special Valentines dinner for the Officers Mess. As he says "My objective is to help create a convivial environment, with a goal of providing impeccable service and delicious cuisine. Passion is at the heart

    of my work and the relationship with my customers. It is what I strive to express each day." Bon Apptit.
