All You Ever Wanted to Know About Gregor’s Gourmet!
Chef Greg’s passion for food started at an early age, where he discovered that in order to embrace his love of eating…he would have to learn how to cook.
A flat-lander from Saskatchewan, Greg began his move west in order to attend NAIT’s culinary arts program in Edmonton. Upon completion he moved to Vancouver and began hopping back and forth from the mainland to the gulf islands experimenting with coastal flavours.
He then embarked on a 3-year journey visiting many countries. Included in his travels were most of Central and South America, Mexico and New Zealand. This worldly point-of-view allows Chef Greg to create unique and exciting dishes that are sure to tantalize even the most discerning palette.
After completing his Red Seal, Greg developed “Gregor’s Gourmet”. Gregor’s Gourmet was opened in the summer of 2011 and Chef Greg Fuchs hasn’t looked back ever since. From touring British Columbia with his mobile concession stand to catering private parties to his own gourmet preserves, Gregor’s Gourmet is establishing themselves as the healthy and delicious choice for the Okanagan Valley.

Loving Every Minute Of It
When not developing new dishes, Greg can be found foraging through the bush for tasty seasonal treats or floating around in the nearest water-hole fly-fishing for the main entree. When the lakes freeze over, snowshoeing becomes the alternate sport.
In the winter, Greg is the Head Chef at The Crescent Spur Heliskiing Lodge, nestled in the northern Caribou Mountains, and the northern Rocky Mountains (the Rockies). They are a (just under) two-hour drive, east of Prince George, the largest city in Northern BC.
