Food always tastes better when someone else cooks it, especially if Ryan Liebrecht adds his culinary touch. Liebrecht, a seasoned chef who has worked all over the world – from Whistler to London to Bermuda – is embarking on a new mission. After having been a restaurant owner for the past five years in Whistler, British Columbia, where he catered meals for the likes of Halle Berry, Prince Albert of Monaco, Peter Gabriel and Sir Richard Branson, Liebrecht’s newest pursuit is to hit the road as an independent personal chef, essentially becoming an on-call chef for you.
Ryan’s credentials speak for themselves. After working at the Canadian Pacific Chateau Whistler (now called Fairmont Chateau Whistler), he earned the Fairmont Hotels Apprentice of the Year award. Once he completed his apprenticeship, he journeyed to Bermuda, where he worked as a saucier at the Waterlot Restaurant, part of the prestigious Fairmont South Hampton Princes. Then, in 2004, Ryan and his wife moved to Cheshire, England, where he immediately began using his cooking talents at a boutique hotel called the Bridge. It didn’t take long for him to make his mark with the British. After just three months at the Bridge Restaurant, Ryan was head hunted by an agency and offered a job as a sous chef at the Swettenham Arms. In 2006 he was awarded the Thompson rivers University Alumni Student of the Year for opening Ciao Thyme Bistro.
Ryan’s culinary skills are sure to please the most sophisticated of palates. He focuses on using regionally grown produce, local game and seafood, all the while adding his own personal touch to every meal.
Ryan’s new venture has him available to travel the world just for you. There are no boundaries, as his ambition and passion for food will travel the world and stop only on your door step. Whether booking a family vacation, private dinners, or entertaining for friends, you need to look no further than here for your chef!
