Acclaimed Restaurateur, Chef, Cookbook Author
VANCOUVER, BC - British born John Bishop, who has been cooking since his early teens, attended hotel school in Wales and served his apprenticeship at a private London club.
After ten years as chef at a restaurant in Kinsale, County Cork, he came to Canada in 1973, where he continued to pursue his culinary career.
In 1985 he launched the restaurant that bears his name Bishop’s, located in Vancouver, was an immediate success and continues to garner accolades.
The fare at Bishop’s is regional and seasonal. In Chef Bishop’s view, it makes sense to showcase British Columbia’s lush bounty of seafood, organic produce and meats.
His exquisite West Side restaurant blends classic and modern flavours with a casual elegance that keeps clients coming back for a truly exceptional dining experience.
