David Lee was born in Mauritius... which is the best-governed country in Africa according to Wikipedia. I did some digging and it says David grew up in England and moved to Canada in 1994 at the age of 24. That makes him 40? Aw I love him. If anyone knows him, please tell him I would love to meet me.
I love me a well traveled man! David traveled to Napa Valley, Hong Kong, Madrid, Italy and France New York in order to expand his knowledge and craft. I have walked past his restaurant on Queen St 1000 times and I have never been there :(. Something to do for 2010!

" I believe that a chef is only as good as his ingredients, "he says. "It's important to choose the best seasonal product to make the most flavourful, pleasing dishes."
I like that. Fall in love with David Lee hereTweet This
