Spencer Watts says cooking is the great love of his life. Growing up on the lower mainland of British Columbia, Spencer was inspired by the vast array of fresh local ingredients available. He started cooking and entering culinary competitions in high school, which ignited a passion for cooking. After graduation, he enrolled at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vancouver. He then quickly progressed through the ranks at The Westin Grand and C restaurant, while training with some of the best local talent in the culinary scene.
After a couple of years as a restaurateur, Spencer started his own cooking show called Coast Cooking with Spence, which aired on a local cable channel and allowed him to share his talents with others.
Spencer is presently enjoying life in Vancouver while working on his cookbook and promoting sustainable seafood.
