Owner and pastry chef, Peter Fong, opened Ganache Pâtisserie in December of 2003 - the culmination of a dream to bring a little taste of Paris to Vancouver. Born and raised in Vancouver, Peter’s passion for baking followed him throughout high school and university where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Genetic Engineering from the University of British Columbia. After a backpacking trip through Europe and France, and experiencing the French passion for food and what the true art of pâtisserie could be, Peter decided to change careers, follow his heart and become a pastry chef. After graduating from the Baking and Pastry Arts program at the Dubrulle International Hotel and Culinary Institute, Peter completed his apprenticeship and obtained his journeyman’s Red Seal certificate during his 7 year stint working at local upscale hotels including the Fairmont Château Whistler, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and the Delta Pinnacle Harbourside. Inspired by trips to Paris and its haute pâtisseries, Peter’s dream was fulfilled with the launch of Ganache Pâtisserie and a French pastry shop in Yaletown was born.
