Bringing culinary expertise to life

Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten

Internationally acclaimed, three-star Michelin chef, entrepreneur and author of numerous cookbooks, Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings his signature vibrant cuisine to MARKET by Jean-Georges. His eponymous restaurant in Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, is a destination restaurant for unique culinary experiences. 

Executive Chef, Ken Nakano

Nakano grew up in a traditional Japanese household, where the garden was the driving force of his family’s meals. Tending to the backyard garden was part of his daily chores, and scavenging for local fiddleheads, coltsfoot, and berries were the highlight of family camping trips with his cousins. Once the seasons changed from fishing and foraging for fresh ingredients, to harvest time, he learned the arts of salt curing, canning, and pickling thanks to his mother. Little did he know at the time, Nakano’s mother was instilling the importance of practicing a sustainable, seasonal approach to cooking.  


“I remember putting seaweed from Spanish Banks into the garden in the spring, and fallen maple leaves in autumn, to nourish the soil and prepare it for the coming seasons,” said Nakano. “Honouring the seasons and eating this way has always been part of my lifestyle. As a chef, I have a great respect for our local community; when we collaborate with farm partners and local producers we can plan and create truly regional, seasonal menus.” 



Guests dining at the hotel’s restaurant, MARKET by Jean-Georges, can expect to see sophisticated yet uncomplicated flavours, and seasonal menus showcasing the best ingredients from coast to coast. Guest are encouraged to keep an eye on the Rooted in Nature dinner tasting menu, and dishes such as the Beef Carpaccio, Pickled Chanterelle Mushrooms and House Made Mustard, which uses British Columbia born and grazed, hormone, steroid and antibiotic free beef from Cache Creek Natural Beef. Another standout dish is the Soy Lacquered Veal Cheek, served with Crosne and a purée of Sunchoke from North Arm Farm in Pemberton, British Columbia.
