Bowen, who specializes in creative west coast cuisine with strong classic roots has developed menus at a variety of restaurants, resorts and catering companies, is also known as the 5 Minute Gourmet who makes cooking videos for YouTube that show the world how to create “real food, real fast!” Peter's cooking style has evolved from his breadth of experience in high-end lodges, bistro restaurants and teaching culinary arts. He brings a light-hearted, yet expert approach to the art of cooking. His move to the west coast as a young man provided him with a foundation which helped him form his philosophy and approach to food. Local, organic, seasonal food with exotic elements is incorporated into both his menus and his own lifestyle. After many years of running high-quality restaurants on Saltspring and Vancouver Island, he became a high-school culinary arts teacher in Cedar, BC. This led to his mission to “teach as many people to cook as possible.” His 5 Minute Gourmet project has led to over 100,000 views on YouTube. Huffington Post named him one of the 10 World Class Chefs on Twitter Who Make it Sizzle. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2morrowknight/10-world-class-chefs-on-t_b_307161.html Trained at the internationally renowned George Brown College Chef School in Toronto, Peter is a seasonal chef at exclusive, upscale restaurants and resorts; a guest chef on morning TV; teaches culinary arts; and creates fast, fun how-to cooking videos for his YouTube channel -- 5 Minute Gourmet.
