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 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 Canada, Avenue, FFWD Weekly and Flavours. 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 Global Television in Saskatoon and Calgary and is 660 News Radio’s go-to foodie.
Most of his free time is currently being consumed by the looming deadline for his first book, StreetEats: Calgary which is set to be released in Spring, 2014 by Whitecap Books. All other moments of free time are spent filming his first web series and working on – hopefully – two future cookbooks, including one inspired by his Start From Scratch program.
