He loves challenges and seeks constant improvement. He is ambitious and he knows what he wants.
HIS PASSION FOR COOKING
With a little more than 10 years of experience, Arnaud believes that his passion for cooking has been transmitted by Mr Alain Beaudoux, the first Chef he worked with at restaurant Le Pont de Raffiny in France in the first years of his career. After this first inspiring experience, Arnaud made the decision to pack his bags to do the seasons in France. He therefore worked in restaurants that are opened only for a season, that is, Summers in the South of France and Winters in the mountains. His journey in various restaurants lasted eight years.
In Spring of 2010, he participated in the first season of Les Chefs culinary competition on CBC where he went to finale. This beautiful adventure allowed him to meet famous Chef Jean-Luc Boulay. In Spring of 2012, the two developed a friendship which transformed into a business partnership leading to the opening of the new restaurant Chez Boulay – Bistro boréal. This new concept of Nordic inspiration allows Arnaud to develop menus based on the seasons with Canadian products.
