Alyssa Dawson
Junior Food Stylist || Television Host || Writer

Alyssa’s ability to make others feel at ease has served her well as a guest on network segments for Breakfast Television and CTV Morning Live, and as host of City Lights, and Food Finds, where she has had the opportunity to interview and cook with top international celebrity chefs including Chuck Hughes, Rob Feenie, Vikram Vij, and David Rocco. Whether it’s one on one for a television interview or on stage in front of thousands at EAT! Vancouver, Alyssa always gets at the heart of the story with an effortless style that is equal parts charming and engaging. With her seemingly never-ending energy reserves and outgoing personality she is a natural people person both on and off camera.
Her formal educational background is in broadcast journalism, but Alyssa is also a capable and accomplished cook having first learned from her grandmothers who worked in the culinary industry. Nowadays she is constantly gleaning tips and tricks from the top chefs she rubs elbows with on screen or at the latest restaurant openings. Her understanding of a variety of cooking styles and techniques comes partly from her experience traveling abroad, particularly in South East Asia where she lived for over a year.
Behind the scenes, as a Junior Food Stylist, Alyssa is enthusiastic and open to fresh new ideas. She is always eager to help create the best outcome possible, and she puts her knowledge as a professional foodie and experienced cook to use, assisting the more senior Food Stylists on set with incredible focus and intensity. With her finger on the pulse of the hottest food trends and juiciest culinary ideas Alyssa is a true asset to the JMS team.
Alyssa will tell you that food is her life. With her backstage pass to the Vancouver restaurant scene, she is privy to so many of the fabulous kitchens and restaurants this city has to offer. Her passion and enthusiasm for food is contagious and her positive attitude can light up a set. While Alyssa has hosted everything from red carpets to tech lifestyle programs, her passion lies in the Food & Design industry.
