Nicolas Hipperson, Executive Chef

Born in Victoria, British Columbia, Nicolas Hipperson has always been inspired by his surroundings and truly humbled by the beautiful bounty of the Pacific Northwest. After moving to Regina Saskatchewan at the age of 11, quickly learning that he was not made to handle the sub-zero bleak flat lands of southern Saskatchewan. Starting as a dishwasher for Earls, and working on the appetizer station, he learned that mass production and pre-fabricated food was not for him. Becoming inspired by his grandmother’s lush garden of fresh home grown produce, Nicolas set out to find a position where he could learn from, and cook with the best Regina had to offer, while serving locally grown foods that were raised in sustainable and ethical environments.

Nicolas took his first serious restaurant position at The Willow on Wascana where he able to peruse what he was passionate about, while learning great techniques and flavours from one of Canadas best Chefs, Mo Matthew.

In 2007, Nicolas set down roots in Vancouver where he graduated from The International Culinary Institute at the Art Institute of Vancouver. While attending classes Nicolas worked and staged at many of Vancouver best restaurants, including but not limited to Adesso Bistro, The Global Group of Restaurants and C Restaurant.

After graduating from school and quickly climbing the ranks at Vancouver’s top farm to table restaurant, Raincity Grill, Nicolas was here, able to grab his first Executive Chef Position. Working closely with his farmers and producers Nicolas was able to cement a name for himself as a leading culinary talent and massive supporter of The Oceanwise Initiative. After taking over as Executive chef of all food and beverage operations within the Kambolis group, Nicolas worked tirelessly until the restaurants sale in 2015.

After spending some time working on various passion projects and pop up restaurants in Vancouver, Nicolas was awarded one of BC Business Magazines highly coveted Top 30 under 30 awards for his innovative and creative approach to sustainable dining.

In March of 2017, Nicolas accepted the Executive Chef position at The Union Club of BC. Leading his bright new culinary team at the club, he continues to push forward on his passion of serving refined plates of locally sourced and sustainable cuisine.

Looking forward to a long future at the club, Nicolas is a proud member of a great team with whom he hopes to spend a long and successful career with.
