Executive Chef Biography: Atticus Garant

After seven years of travelling and immersing himself in numerous cities and countries, Chef Atticus Garant returns home to Canada as the Executive Chef of Canada’s Castle in the Rockies, Fairmont Banff Springs. His global approach and two decades of hospitality experience will guide the next chapter of Fairmont Banff Springs’ culinary story.

Chef Atticus began working in kitchens at an early age which inspired him to take Culinary Arts at Vancouver Island University. After graduating with honours, Chef Atticus became Head Chef in two of the world’s most exclusive islands, Langara Island, BC and Long Island, Bahamas. He later worked with Michelin-decorated chef Daniel Boulud, which became the foundation for his continued pursuit of luxury dining.

Chef Atticus has spent over a decade working for many of Fairmont’s flagship properties in food-centric cities, such as Vancouver (Fairmont Pacific Rim), Chicago (Fairmont Millennium Park) and Austin (Fairmont Austin), with projects in Fairmont Pittsburgh, Fairmont Grand Del Mar, Sofitel Reforma Mexico City and with the Culinary Institute of America. Chef Atticus joins the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel after his most recent role as the opening Executive Chef of the Century Plaza in Los Angeles, which saw him lead the team through iconic Hollywood events such as the Critic’s Choice and the Academy Awards. Throughout his tenure with Fairmont, Chef Atticus has opened four hotels and multiple restaurants and has earned numerous leadership awards.

A chef passionate about sustainability, farming, and, most of all, team engagement, Chef Atticus brings craft education and progression to his new brigade.
