Vancouver’s Bacchus Restaurant announces new pastry chef Chris Janik

The luxury hotel’s award-winning restaurant appoints a new pastry chef

This week, Vancouver’s Bacchus Restaurant announced the appointment of seasoned pastry chef Chris Janik to the Wedgewood Hotel’s award-winning culinary team. 

Since arriving in Canada from his home country of Poland, Janik has produced world class pastries for a number of acclaimed Vancouver establishments, including the Toptable Group, Aquafarina, and most recently, Miku, where he showcased his unique European-Japanese flair for more than a decade. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome Chris to the Bacchus family,” says Elpie Marinakis, co-owner and managing director of Wedgewood Hotel and Spa. “His calibre of craft, training, and dedication to making each guest experience an unforgettable one makes him a perfect fit. We look forward to showcasing his unique sense of style and panache for locals and visitors alike.”

Janik is currently in the process of creating a menu of European-inspired desserts to pair with the cuisine of executive chef Montgomery Lau, which he says will include a variety of cakes, sweets, and more. 

“I’m excited to join the talented Bacchus team that has already established an uncompromising standard of culinary excellence,” says Janik. “Throughout my life, all of my experiences in the kitchen have revolved around those final courses that further bring friends and families together around the table, and it’s my aim to keep the feeling and tradition alive and well.”

Both Bacchus Restaurant and Bacchus Lounge are open seven days a week for dine-in and delivery.
