Ryan De Alwis - Chef, owner and operator of Curry’s Curries, specializing in curries and hot sauce through contactless home delivery in the Bow Valley, along with hosting private dinner parties, and international wellness retreats

 

Working in kitchens in a variety of roles for over 15 years, Ryan came to the Bow Valley in 2012 and worked as a dishwasher to embark on his culinary journey to become a Chef.  Ryan loves and lives to eat! He specializes in comfort food, from stick to your rib curries, stews and soups, to more elevated forms of comfort through multi-course dinner parties that explore unique and obscure spices, and how to use them effectively.

"Food is communication - a way for me to express myself, provoke response and create dialogue. I live to eat, I love to cook, and have a bottomless, insatiable hunger for learning. I am not a 'trained' Chef; no papers, no seals, no framed certificates, no credentials outside of hours worked and scars from my elbows down to my fingertips. Food is, and should be, comfort. A blanket for the soul. Food is history, culture, memory. Food allows me to explore ideas, makes mistakes, ask 'what if'... Food gives me the ability to relate, and I am extremely grateful for every opportunity thrown my way. I could tell you about my past, my influences, my inspiration, where I've been, what I have done, yada yada yada, but I much rather show you who I am, through food."
