Chef & Owner
D'Arcy Demoe is the proud owner of Harvest Chef Society; a collection of Chefs located to Whistler from different parts of Canada that are inspired by our surroundings. We love to incorporate the local setting and our personal stories into what we create for you on your special day or event.
D'Arcy believes in the power of community and proudly partners with farmers, grocers and other chefs and businesses in Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton.
D'Arcy Demoe started his culinary adventure at a Caribbean-inspired restaurant in Durham, just outside of Toronto, Ontario. With an addiction to the fast-paced restaurant industry, D'Arcy took his talents to Whistler where he worked at various kitchens. After returning to Toronto to study at George Brown College, he helped open Trios Bistro under the influence of Chef Morgan Wilson and Chef Rendall Mercer. In 2011 D'Arcy and his family moved back to Whistler and with the inspiration of the mountains worked as Head Chef of Steeps on Whistler mountain. Looking to put a more personal and creative spin on his food, D'Arcy took his many years of experience and started Harvest Catering & Harvest Chef Society.
Harvest Chef society is a collection of Whistler-based personal chefs, caterers and nutritional coaches who partner with local farmers and producers to serve the best tasting meals. Whether you're looking for personal chef services, to host a private event or for meal planning and preparation, we've got you covered.
