The Pacific Northwest is full of untamed wilderness.  Wild Isle is all about taking inspiration from the wilderness. 

Simple, local, and wild are words that best describe Chef Jade Berg’s food philosophy. For his entire adult life, Chef Berg has lived and cooked on Canada’s west coast. Jade’s passion for wild food, along with the culture and tastes of the Pacific Northwest, is evident in his cooking now more than ever.

After years as a professional chef in restaurants, on the water, and in private residences, Chef Jade Berg is happy to share this passion with you now through his cooking with Wild Isle.

Fire-based Cooking

“Hospitality consists of a little fire, a little food, and an immense quiet.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Something special about a meal cooked over an open flame. No two dishes will ever be the same. People have been gathering around a fire to eat since the discovery of fire. A dinner cooked over fire evokes many primal memories.

Book Jade to cook in your camp, remote, or close to home. Bring your own wild game and learn how to prepare it. Or sit back and visit while the fire crackles. These are the kind of memories that last a lifetime.
