The Farmer’s Apprentice, Vancouver
A celebrated champion of locavores and a staunch proponent of ecological gastronomy, Chef David Gunawan sharpened his skills in acclaimed kitchens in Chicago, Seattle, Vancouver and Belgium before opening Farmer’s Apprentice in 2013 and Grapes & Soda and Royal Dinette in 2015, each setting a new standard for sustainably sourced farm-to-table cuisine.
His culinary approach is dictated by whatever fresh produce arrives at his door from local farmers each day. Launched in 2013 Farmer’s Apprentice was ranked No. 2 on EnRoute Magazine’s annual list of Canada’s Best New Restaurants in 2014, and also swept the podium that year with nods for Best New Restaurant, Best Casual Restaurant and Restaurant of the Year at the 25th annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.In 2016, Gunawan was named Chef of the Year at the annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.
The sleek, beautifully curated menus are a peek into B.C.’s vibrant agricultural community. One is entirely devoted to vegetables. He’s named it Herbivore. Another is for those who eat across the food spectrum and he’s called that Omnivore. And, of course, there’s a tasting menu.
