Clayton Klyne

Clayton Klyne

Clayton will always remember his culinary instructor at SAIT Professional  Cooking  College in Calgary, Canada saying, “Once you become a qualified chef, you can work anywhere in the world  you choose.”  He did just that, and hasn’t looked back since.

Clayton’s passion for food began at age 15 when he worked as a kitchen hand in a Winnipeg Deli.  Twenty years later he has had the opportunity to work in cities around  the world,  Edinburgh, Belfast, Calgary, Melbourne, and Auckland, just to name a few. He has also travelled extensively throughout Asia and Europe, on a mission to learn their regional cuisine, this being the basis for the “Chefs Run Wild” tv series

 

Lyndon Wiebe

Lyndon Wiebe

Lyndon was born and bred in Winnipeg before moving to Calgary in 1994. It was in Calgary where he discovered his passion for cooking and food.  After graduating high school Lyndon took his $50 VW Rabbit and drove across Canada on a trip that was supposed to last three weeks. Eight months later he finally returned with another passion; Travel. He then graduated the Culinary Arts program at S.A.I.T. in Calgary and decided to combine the two things he loved most. After nearly a year of cooking and traveling in Australia, Lyndon took his first trip to Asia. He then spent three years living in Scotland and exploring Europe.  In 2005 Lyndon came home to Canada.  A year and a half later he reunited with Clayton and Chad in New Zealand for a year, then headed back to Oz before embarking on the trip of a lifetime.  Lyndon currently resides in Winnipeg, Canada.

    Hi guys!
    Just saw your episode in Manila on NatGeo. Truly felt sad about your experience. Hope you guys would find time to go back to the Philippines and also check out better and safe places which Filipinos are proud of, even on a budget! There’s a lot out there. Cheers to your show!

      Thanks for the comment! Even though our experience in Manilla wasn’t the greatest we still loved it but especially all the towns and cities we saw in the rest of the country. The people were amazing and Philippines is beautiful! Every time someone asks where to go, I always recommend Philippines.

      Yes Scott it was definitely not a nice thing to see. We were in Laos at that time right near the Vietnam border. I am afraid it was most likely heading there but really can’t be too sure….

    Hi guys.. my comments are that you guys have done an incredible job with your program and your photography is absolutely amazing! You have definitely found your passion in life and it comes through in every thing you do. My question is, is your program available on dvd to purchase … Reno and I still watch your series every sunday morning, but if possible, we would like to have a permanent set to keep.. Any prospects of this now, or in the future?

    Best wishes in all your future ventures … keep going with what you’re doing, you have Anthony Bourdan’s program beat by far!!!
