Spencer Watts

Spencer Watts is well known for his energetic persona and expert culinary skills that he’s brought to several cooking series and specials, including Fish the Dish, Spencer’s BIG 30, Watts on the Grill, Spencer and Robert’s Game Day Buffet, and Watts Up for the Holidays.

Spencer says cooking is the great love of his life. Growing up on the lower mainland of British Columbia, he was inspired by the vast array of fresh local ingredients available. He started cooking and entering culinary competitions in high school, which ignited a passion for cooking. After graduation, he enrolled at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vancouver. He then quickly progressed through the ranks at The Westin Grand and C restaurant, while training with some of the best local talent in the culinary scene. After a couple of years as a restaurateur, Spencer started his own cooking show called Coast Cooking with Spence, which aired on a local cable channel and allowed him to share his talents with others. A Gusto fan favourite, Spencer is currently enjoying life in Vancouver.
