Chef David Hawksworth realises his culinary vision at his first eponymous restaurant, in the very heart of downtown Vancouver. At Hawksworth Restaurant he has created the ideal setting to deliver compelling contemporary Canadian cuisine; a demonstration of his European-trained technical ability, deep appreciation for local ingredients and an absolute insistence on only the very best quality. Winner of 2012 and 2013 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards Restaurant of the Year and Chef of the Year and for three consecutive years, Best Upscale Dining, as well as enRoute magazine’s top three Best New Restaurants, and Maclean’s magazine Restaurant of the Year; David has anchored himself at the helm of the Vancouver - and Canadian - dining scene.
A native Vancouverite who spent a decade honing his talents in Europe working in Michelin-starred kitchens such as Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, L’Escargot and The Square, David soon emerged as one of Canada’s leading culinary talents upon his return in summer 2000. In 2008 David was named to Western Living’s ‘Top 40 under 40’ and became the youngest chef inductee in to the BC Restaurant Hall of Fame.
In 2013 he launched the Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship Foundation, which annually awards $10,000 and an international stage to boost the career of a young professional chef; Hawksworth is joined by notable guest chef judges from across the country to determine the winner who compete in a culinary cook off, firmly cementing Hawksworth’s culinary influence on the international stage. In 2014 the program is expanding across Canada by hosting regional heats in Calgary, Toronto and Halifax; top finalists then travel to Vancouver to vie for the title of Hawksworth Scholar.
