Chef Trevor Bird
Trevor Bird began his foray into the culinary world as a teenager. Cooking is all he knows and thank goodness for all the eaters amongst us, he knows it extremely well. His career led him into acclaimed kitchens such as Ottawa’s National Arts Centre, Jean George’s MARKET, and Daniel Boulud’s Lumiere. In 2011, Trevor secured his rising star status by placing runner up against some of Canada’s greatest chefs in “Top Chef Canada Season 2.” This was certainly a defining moment in his culinary career.
In 2012, Trevor created Fable, his own restaurant in which he practices his passion for locally focused ingredients and showcases British Columbia’s regional bounty in all of the menu’s dishes. Within a short time, Fable Kitchen became the recipient of numerous accolades and quickly rose to become one of Vancouver’s favourite dining destination. In 2015, a most intriguing opportunity presented itself; the owners of a restaurant space were looking for strong operating partners to open something new in an iconic location which has held a diner since 1949. The desire to continue the heritage of the space, paired with Trevor’s philosophy of farm to table cuisine naturally led to the emergence of a modern day diner: Fable Diner.
In 2017 Trevor appeared on Top Chef Canada All Stars finishing in 3rd place, and most recently was named Vancouver’s Chef of the Year by the Georgia Straight.
