Born in Saskatchewan, Chef Dale MacKay’s early culinary career as a fry cook in Vancouver helped him discover his deep passion for food. This led him to London, England, where he built upon his experience at Claridge’s, a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. After stints at Ramsay locations in Japan and New York, he returned home to become the executive chef of Lumière in Vancouver. He opened two restaurants here and found time to win the first Top Chef Canada competition.

In 2012, he decided to close his Vancouver locations, and a year later he returned to his hometown of Saskatoon to open the first of four restaurants under what would become his Grassroots Restaurant Group.
