About Kendall

Hi, I'm Kendall Gustavson, owner of the modern pantry and lover of food. I have a Masters degree in Food Culture and Communications from The University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy and have worked for Borough Market in London, England – one of the largest food markets in the world – developing a food education program.

More importantly, living in five different countries and finding my way in the world through my stomach have exposed me to extraordinary producers and fascinating food stories. I bring a world of food back to my hometown of Vancouver in my own kitchen creations and in shared experiences over a glass of wine or obscenely large pile of ginger molasses cookies. I look forward to cooking, eating, and exploring with you. Let's chat; I bet you're really interesting.
