About KRIS KABUSH
District is excited to introduce our Executive Chef Kris Kabush of Vancouver Canada. Born and raised in Vancouver, Chef Kris has built his career in some of the cities top kitchens under the tutelage of many of Canada’s most respected chefs.
Kris brings with him high energy, enthusiasm and a wealth of experience to elevate the level of cuisine to new heights here at District. Chef Kris took to the culinary industry at an early age, during his final year in high school he began his apprenticeship in one of the top kitchens in the country under Canada’s highest placing chef at the prestigious Bocuse Dór competition and with another apprentice who would go on to be another future competitor in the same competition in 2013. This was truly the start of what would be a long, thrilling and passionate career for the young chef.
Chef Kris’ philosophy on food is a simple one which is to use the best available ingredients, treat them with great respect and creativity while utilizing years of training to create a unique dining experience. Quality is always the top priority in Chef Kris’ kitchens which he maintains by sourcing the best ingredients in the region and building working relationships with the different purveyors. He emphasizes the importance of using the most sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients in his cuisine for the sake of not only quality but also to do his part to reduce the negative affect on our planet.
Kris has had the opportunity to draw on many cultural influences while working his way through his career in Canada. Vancouver is a hub of ethnic diversity which over time has created a very special platform for chefs to draw from in their experience in the kitchens there.
Chef Kris works hard to build a strong culture within his kitchens of constant improvement and respect for every individual within the brigade. When asked how he is able to maintain consistency and quality while continuously improving he stands behind two key traits which are to stay humble and ambitious, with those two things as driving factors in any individual he says that anyone will find success.
Chef Kris is very excited for the opportunity to bring to the team an outstanding passion for the culinary arts through his unique style that combined with the eclecticism of his international experience to the Mexican Republic.
