Sebastián Delgado Sánchez

EXECUTIVE CHEF

Sebastián Delgado Sánchez’s culinary journey comes full circle at Ancora False Creek. The Peruvian-born chef pays homage to his roots by using the exotic flavours and time-honoured techniques of his homeland as inspiration for each dish.

 

Sebastián first began sharpening his blade in kitchens across Lima while attending culinary school at the Paul Bocuse Institute at San Ignacio de Loyola. Post-graduation, he hopped the pond to continue his training under the tutelage of celebrated Spanish chef and restaurateur, Juan Mari Arzak at his eponymous Michelin-starred establishment, Arzak in San Sebastián. After a year at Arzak, Sebastián returned to Lima and bolstered his resume with a four-year turn as Executive Chef at Olé Bar Restaurante before venturing back to Spain and anchoring a number of kitchens in Barcelona, Santander, Guadalajara and Madrid.

 

In 2018, Sebastián joined the Ancora family at the original False Creek location adding a dash of discipline, panache and enthusiasm to the team. With his love for Peruvian and Asian cuisine, great organizational skills and fastidiousness, it allows him to optimize his talents and create unforgettable dining experiences for Ancora’s guests. When he is not cooking in the Ancora kitchen, he can be found flipping through cook books from around the world for inspiration.
