Derek Dammann

Maison Publique

Derek Dammann was raised in Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada, the salmon capital of the world. After studying cooking in Nanaimo, chef Dammann worked in one of Canada’s great Italian restaurants, Zambris’s, in Victoria, before making his way to the UK to work with Jamie Oliver. He went on to work at The Fat Duck and at St. John before making his way back to Canada and settling in Montréal where he opened DNA. One of the most exciting nose-to-tail restaurants in the country. He partnered once again with Jamie Oliver to open Maison Publique, a hugely popular and highly regarded gastropub. In 2015 Derek released his first cookbook entitled True North, Canadian cooking from coast to coast.
