Denise Sparrow

Denise’s involvement in cultural foods began when her grandmother and mother brought her on hikes to gather foods for their home then showed her how to prepare them in the Sechelt way.  In 1993, Denise applied this knowledge to her first food venture, which was selling salmon.  The salmon business flourished and eventually transformed into a catering business when her Aunt directed her to set up a food stand at a pow-wow… thus began Salishan Catering. Denise also enjoys sharing her knowledge of traditional cultural cooking and food preparation in elementary schools.
