About Dan

Dan Clapson

Originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, Dan Clapson moved to Calgary, Alberta in 2006 with nothing but a parrot on his shoulder (and a full U-Haul). He now happily resides in the city’s beltline area, still with a parrot on his shoulder.

When he’s not experimenting with recipes, Dan is usually traveling across the country progressing his knowledge of the always evolving Canadian food scene. If he’s at home in Calgary, he can be spotted dining out with friends, catching some live music, walking around town, or on The Ship and Anchor patio having a pint of Steam Whistle on a sunny day!

Dan writes for many media sources, ranging from local to national, including Food Network CanadaAvenueenRoute, Westjet Magazine and Culinaire. In fall, 2013 he co-founded Eat North, Canada’s first official national culinary website, alongside Diana Ng and Dave Wilkinson. He makes regular appearances on BT Calgary, Global Television in Saskatoon and Calgary and  is 660 News Radio’s go-to foodie. He is also a proud blogger and Calgary ambassador for Alberta Pork.

Any moments of free time are spent working on developing an exciting web series (taking forever!) and working on – hopefully – two future cookbooks, including one inspired by his Start From Scratch program.
