A lover of Québec who makes sure to use local products and make them shine, perfectly in line with the values ​​advocated by the art of eating well, expressed by the new family. Passed by prestigious international addresses, from his classes at the Côte d’Or restaurant of Bernard Loiseau until recently at L’Atelier Joël Robuchon in Montreal, the French Chef, member of the respected association of Maîtres Cuisiniers de France, continues to perfect his art. His cuisine is made up of paradoxes and contrasts, combining the traditions of the past with the gestures of the present.
