ALANA PECKHAM, CULINARY INSTRUCTOR

My journey in cooking started at the young age of 8 years old. My mom would do all of the prep and under her supervision, I would execute the meals and cook the stir fry’s. I discovered in my teens that I had a love for all things food. Watching cooking shows, before The Food Network came around, and experiencing new foods definitely excited me! This love would lead me to enter the professional world of food and cooking. I started my career at Dubrulle International Culinary School, followed by positions at Feenie’s and Lumiere before eventually becoming the Executive Chef at CRU and later The Hart House Restaurant. My experience in these top local restaurants prepared me for my win on The Food Network’s popular show Chopped Canada in 2015! Since my win, I have been the Corporate Chef for Alligga and a private catering chef. I now join Northwest Culinary Academy of Vancouver with full confidence that I will be able to help influence and guide our dedicated students to reach their goals. My attention to detail and organization will be key assets to mine and our students’ success here at Northwest Culinary Academy of Vancouver. Aside from my passion for food, I also have a great love for my family and dogs. I was born and raised here in Vancouver and I take great pleasure in enjoying our West coast lifestyle.
