Sebastian Cortez is the owner of Sebastian & Co Fine Organic Meats. Sebastian immigrated to Toronto from Chile in 1999 and moved to Vancouver in 2006. By April of 2007, he opened the door of his own butcher shop in Dundarave Village, West Vancouver.
Sebastian is a trained professional chef-turned-butcher who once worked for renowned Toronto chef Jamie Kennedy. Wanting to broaden his knowledge about food, he decided to study the art of butchery. After working as head butcher in Toronto, Sebastian moved west to settle down and open his own shop.
Sebastian takes his inspiration from the artisan butcher shops of Europe and South America. His passion for food and fine meats is clear the moment you step into his shop. He takes great pains to prepare immaculately frenched racks of lamb, beautifully tied standing rib roasts, and perfect dry-aged steaks that taste even better than they look. With his chef’s background, he is happy to offer cooking tips or suggest different ways to prepare your favorite cuts of meat.
