Chef Christian Bolduc Recipes - Altitude Seafood and Grill at Le Casino de Mont-Tremblant, Canada PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen   

Chef Christian Bolduc - Altitude Seafood and Gill - Loung Restauant at Le Casion de Mont-Tremblant, Canada Chef Christian Bolduc creates gastronomic dining at Altitude Seafood and Grill - Lounge Restaurant at Le Casino de Mont-Tremblant, Canada where guests may arrive by car or by a romantic panoramic gondola to the restaurant. He graciously shares a taste of the restaurant with his recipe for Atlantic Salmon Trilogy, which ties into his European cuisine experience, his love of fishing, as well as a re-interpretation of classic fish and seafood dishes. Bon Appétit!

Edward and I had dinner at Altitude Seafood and Grill - Lounge Restaurant at the top of Mont-Tremblant in late February 2011 and had the opportunity to get to know Chef Christian Bolduc and his culinary vision. A native Quebeçois, Chef Christian Bolduc was born in Cantley near Ottawa-Gatineau, honed his culinary skills first at the École Hôtelière de Buckingham, and later apprenticed at the restaurant, Le Sans-Pareil, in Hull, Quebec where he learned the art of Belgian epicurean cuisine. He traveled to Europe and worked at restaurants in Belgium and Switzerland before returning to Canada. In 2004, he joined the Five Diamond team at Casino du Lac-Leamy's Le Baccara as the sous chef, and moved to become the Head Chef of Altitude Seafood and Grill - Lounge Restaurant at their sister property, Le Casino du Mont-Tremblant, where he was involved in the opening in September 2010.

His culinary philosophy is very straightforward and honest. He likes it when his food tastes great and his guests are happy. Quebec has an interesting variety of local products and he enjoys working with the produits du terrior. Although he does not use local products exclusively, he finds that they are often the freshest and the best available so he uses them whenever he can.

His favorite product is pork, in all its forms, as it is very versatile and always satisfying. He is also enjoying developing new and interesting approaches to preparing and presenting seafood for his clients. He loves the winter season because it gives him the freedom to serve up some big, hearty, comfort food. Since winter is the busiest season in Mont-Tremblant, he has the opportunity to deliver bold and flavorful meals to people coming in after a day spent on the mountain.

When not at work in the kitchen he enjoys fishing, however his family is his number one priority and he enjoys spending time with his partner and his two daughters ages 5 and 18 months. As for whether or not there are any budding chefs in his family, it is a little too early to tell. He says that for now at least, they seem to enjoy his cooking.

Until you can experience Altitude Seafood and Grill - Lounge Restaurant at Le Casino de Mont-Tremblant in Canada for yourself, enjoy a delectable taste of the restaurant with Chef Christian Bolduc's recipe for Atlantic Salmon Trilogy. Bon Appétit!

½ Cup (100 ml) Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Fresh Thyme, chopped

Method: Cube the beets and cook sous-vide (vacuum sealed in water around 140° F (60° C) with thyme, salt, and pepper. Once beets are cooked, place in a Thermomix (or blender) with sherry vinegar and mix in olive oil. Process until smooth.
