Owen Lightly

Owen Lightly, Chef and owner of Butter on the Endive, was raised on Gabriola Island, a short trip across the Straight of Georgia from Vancouver. After graduating with honours from the Vancouver Island University Culinary Arts Program in 2002, he set out for Vancouver, landing at Aurora Bistro working under Chef Jeff Van Geest. Helping open this award-winning restaurant exposed Owen to a burgeoning movement of locally focused cooking in Vancouver.
