Tristen Katcher: As Humble & Talented As They Come

July 10, 2019

Tristen Katcher is as soft spoken as they come and about as talented and ambitious as I feel he needs to be. The right combination, I feel, that will lead Tristen to an incredible amount of success in this industry. 


He seems to have a passion for every aspect of this space. From spending time working on a farm to now working as closely as possible with the farmers that supply him and his team some of the best produce around. Tristen embodies what I feel new up-and coming talents need to have. A mix of a humble nature, uber talented, and an undeniable thirst to learn more and share all of his learnings. In my mind he has all of the makings of a chef and talent I want to support and get behind.


Sitting down with Tristen I was blown away by his approachability and his overall ease. I look forward to getting to know Tristen even more and supporting him however I can as he witnesses all of the successes that are no doubt due to him.


If you are local in Vancouver, or just visiting the city be sure to stop in and say “hey” to Tristen and his team at Homer Street Cafe.
