Chef Alexandre Gaudette Recipes - L'Avalanche Restaurant Bistro Lounge, Mont Tremblant, Canada PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen   

L'Avalanche - Chef Alexandre Guadette - Mont Tremblant, CanadaChef Alexandre Gaudette is the young creative talent in the kitchen of the charming L'Avalanche Restaurant - Bistro Lounge in Mont-Tremblant, Canada, as evidenced in his recipe for Stuffed Chicken with Goat Cheese and Coriander, Raspberry and Mint Sauce, and Energetic Reduction with Raspberry Wine Vinegar.

 

Chef Alexandre Gaudette - L'Avalanche Restaurant - Bistro Lounge in Mont-Tremblant, CanadaIt seems that chefs these days are getting younger and younger, which is what I immediately thought when I met Executive Chef Alexandre Gaudette in the kitchen after having dinner at the restaurant in February 2009. Although young, he is also very talented, energetic, and creative in his approach to French cuisine. He is passionate about cooking and appreciative of the opportunity that Cedric, the owner of L'Avalanche Restaurant Bistro Lounge gave him. After tasting his creations, I knew that it was an inspired match, with Alexandre and Cedric working together with the L'Avalanche team to create an interesting menu and an inviting ambience for the guests.

For a chef, Alexandre Gaudette believes that it is important to work  at a good restaurant, with a good owner and a good kitchen team, which includes Jovin Degre and Claude Guerette, and to listen to their suggestions. When not creating new recipes, reduction sauces, and infusions, he enjoys listening to the Canadian singer/songwriter/guitarist Dallas Green, and playing his guitar, which as unbelievable as it may seem, he learned to play using the Internet. His goal is to play guitar like Jimi Hendrix and cook like Gordon Ramsey. With his passion and determination, anything is possible.
