Tyler Dallner, Head Chef, comes to The GrandWay kitchen with experience from around the world. He’s not only a foodie at heart, he loves to travel and experience a variety of styles of cooking. Tyler is also an avid gardener and enjoys creating approachable, delicious menus.

An energetic and enthusiastic chef, Tyler came to The GrandWay seeking a great opportunity and the challenge that comes with a brand new kitchen. He had a good feeling right from the start and is eager to grow and learn in his new role.

Studying Culinary Management at George Brown, he worked in an Italian restaurant during his schooling in addition to working his co-op work terms in high-end event centres. After school, he left Canada to hone in on his chef skills while working in Copenhagen and Oslo for 3 months in two different restaurants. Following this experience, he moved to Vancouver for 8 years and continued learning about Canadian food using local fish, meats, and local vegetables (when possible). During his time there, he managed several restaurants. With his depth and variety of skills, It is clear that he is a fantastic addition to The GrandWay kitchen team.

As the head chef in The GrandWay Kitchen, he is in charge of ordering and inventory, scheduling staff, equipment orders and maintenance, setting up the rooms and bars, menu creation and testing, and creating seasonal dishes for our guests to enjoy.

“As head chef, I am looking forward to helping grow The GrandWay and make it a top destination for weddings and events in the area,” says Tyler, “Things to look forward to are transforming the lounge and pub, elevating the menus there, and creating local partnerships for local food sources.” 

We are so pleased to have Tyler leading our kitchen team and look forward to tasting all your beautiful creations!
