John MacNeil

Corporate Red Seal Cannabis Chef, Zenabis

John MacNeil, Corporate Red Seal Cannabis Chef at Zenabis, has a long list of credentials and experience that qualify him as a master of molecular gastronomy. Inspired by the freshness and quality of ingredients at local markets in his hometown of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Chef MacNeil went on to study Culinary Arts at Charlottetown’s Holland College and obtained his Red Seal certification in 2004. He further developed his culinary skills under Chef Urs Thommen in Switzerland, where he learned to apply classical European techniques to his dishes. Chef MacNeil has an impressive track record of achievements in fine dining, including stints as Executive Chef in several high-end restaurants across Canada. He was named Best Chef 2012 by Avenue Magazine, and later received accolades for a restaurant he founded in Calgary called Black Pig Bistro, including Best New Restaurant 2014 (Avenue Magazine) and recognition as one of Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants 2015 (Canada’s 100 Best). His foray into entrepreneurship continued as he co-founded reTreat Edibles, where he found his true calling in developing cannabis infused foods that combine the natural flavour compounds (terpenes) of cannabis with top quality ingredients.*
