Chef David Levar’s cullinary career started in the Muskokas in the late 1990’s working at restaurants and resorts such as Muskoka sands, Port Carling Country Club, Sherwood Inn and Rocky Crest Golf.
He later moved to Halifax to be part of the up and coming culinary scene working first at FID restaurant and then moving on to Seven Restaurant and Wine Bar. It was here that Chef David formed a friend and mentorship under Terry Vassallo, a prominent figure in the East Coast culinary world.
After a few years of eserving as Terry’s sous chef at Trattoria Dela Nona on the souther shore in the little fishing/tourist town of Lunenburg he moved back to Niagara Ontario to be closer to family and pursue other opportunities.
More recently he has been a Private chef in Austin Texas and locally he was Chef at Bistro San Marco in Fonthill for several years before settling in to the executive chef position at Peninsula Lakes banquet room and Fore Restaurant.
Chef Levar’s culinary style focuses on respecting the natural ingredients, highlighting not reinventing the flavours.
