Derek Dammann

From busting myths about eating seal meat to celebrating the art of making Canadian spam for sustenance during long winters, Derek Dammann is passionate about sharing the stories of Canada’s culinary life. His restaurant Maison Publique is ranked #13 on Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants 2018, while McKiernan Luncheonette, his newest project in partnership with the Joe Beef team, is the hottest opening in Montreal this year. His refreshing take on his country’s culinary past will provide plenty of inspiration for Australian gourmands.
