Chef Ned Bell was our first chef in the BCfresh Cook Off. Ned joined The CKNW Morning News crew and cooked up Succotash.
Ned Bell is arguably one of Canada’s foremost culinary talents. Born in the Okanagan British Columbia’s Wine Country, Ned has always had a passion for cooking. Working with fresh ingredients is something that has always inspired and motivated him to create new and imaginative dishes. Ned started his career in Vancouver where he worked as sous chef at Robert Feenie’s Lumiere Restaurant as well as working under Michael Jacob chef & owner of Le Crocodile.
Most recently, Ned has taken on a new challenge and joined the team at Vintage Chophouse and Tavern as their corporate chef. Ned is excited to bring with him to Vintage the knowledge, creativity and intense focus he has cultivated over the course of this career. His talent and expertise, coupled with Vintage’s growing reputation as one of Calgary’s hottest restaurants is undoubtedly the recipe for unsurpassed success!
