Executive Chef Bill Alexander
Canadian born Bill Alexander is a world-renowned and highly decorated Indigenous Chef paving the way for indigenous cultures to be shared with the world through food. His home base is spent Executive Chef at the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino, located on the beautiful Tsuut’ina Nation. Further to this Bill is the Indigenous culinary development chef for WestJet Airlines, as well as the founding chairman of the board of the Indigenous Culinary of Associated Nations.
His early years were spent growing up in Ontario & Western Quebec with heavy influence from his mother & Mohawk community as part of the six nations. The widened approach of a community acting as one large family, coming together over food, formed some of his fondest memories as a child and his strongest foundations as an adult. A childhood spent farming, hunting, gardening and trading with neighbors laid the foundation of locally sourced ingredients and the importance of knowing where your food comes from. Food has always brought our community together and served as an integral part of our culture. By the age of 14, Bill was cooking full meals for his mother and 3 brothers creating and thriving off an ignited passion for food and the smiles that great tasting food inspired. By the age of 17 Bill was well into his culinary career and he never looked back.
