Sip at The Wine Bar & Restaurant has hired Emran Chowdhury as their new Executive Chef.
Born in Bangladesh, Emran Chowdhury moved to Toronto, Canada at the age of 3. He started gaining his kitchen experience at the age of 15. His early training took him to Terroni and Intercontinental Hotel in Toronto. Chowdhury had a strong affinity for the lures of the kitchen and travel. He continued to advance his career on a luxury cruise ship while traveling through Europe, Asia, and South America. The thrill of travel and new cuisines will take Chowdhury to Brazil and Australia next. He relocated to Seattle in 2009 and brought his passion for cuisine with him. Shortly after becoming Chef at Cantinetta, (Wallingford) in 2010 and the additional Bellevue location in 2011, Chowdhury worked at developing new recipes and dishes. Much of Sip’s fresh ingredients are grown in our organic garden on Mercer Island, and Chowdhury is very excited about using the garden to create food with simplicity and consideration. Chef Chowdhury uses classic techniques with an inventive edge to create flavors that are complex, yet soulful.
When he’s not mastering the art of cooking, Chowdhury is relaxing with a great book or watching sports. Come into Sip and get acquainted with Sip’s new Executive Chef.
