Chef Dennis Chan
“Food doesn’t have to be complicated to be satisfying to the soul.”
—Chef Dennis Chan
Dennis Chan is a native of Jacksonville, Florida, and holds both his family’s food-centric culture and spirit of ingenuity close to his heart. Following in the tradition of his family’s 12 successful restaurants, Dennis opened Blue Bamboo in 2005. This accomplishment is the result of many years of study- both independent and academic; first in his grandfather’s kitchen as a child, at the University of Florida and then at the Culinary Institute of America. In addition, Dennis has the distinction of being the first to intern at Ming Tsai’s Blue Ginger restaurant.
Through much discovery, determination, and love, Chef Dennis Chan has brought to those that frequent his restaurant (and now you) uniquely warm and non-fussy experiences in his award winning cookbook entitled Hip Asian Comfort Food.
Experiences he hopes you will share with your loved ones as you discover that food does not have to be complicated to be satisfying to the soul.
Chef Dennis Chan appears at TV press events and has monthly appearances at local cooking venues and kitchenware stores such as A Chefs, Le Creuset, Whole Foods, and Apron’s. He participates in major food charity events such as the Children’s Home Society’s Caring Chefs and the Ronald McDonald House McGala, and teaches culinary students at Florida State College of Jacksonville.
