    Iron Chef Canmore

    Last year, Thai It Up owner Kevin Bellis was crowned Canmore’s Iron Chef. Food critics, local chefs and the public judged Bellis favourably for his signature use of Thai salty, spicy, sweet and sour flavours during the preparation of a whole pig.

It then progressed to dinner parties, a food truck venture and finally to his current, very popular restaurant.
