Chef Daniel Tobien Recipes - Windigo Restaurant - Mont-Tremblant, Canada PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen   

Chef Daniel Tobien of Windigo at Fairmont Tremblant, Mont Tremblant, CanadaChef Daniel Tobien of Windigo Restaurant at the Fairmont Tremblant in Mont-Tremblant, Canada creates authentic regional cuisine that complements the spectacular mountain in the hotel's backyard. He shares an inspired taste of the region with recipes for Trout Filet from the Tremblant Reserve Cooked in a Verrine; and Reinvented Apple Pie with Vanilla and Pecan Glaze.

Although  talented Executive Chef Daniel Tobien grew up in Colmar, France in the Alsace region, after living in Canada for the past 17 years, and in Mont-Tremblant for the past 2 years, his heart is clearly embedded in the region. I met with Chef Daniel Tobien in February 2009 when I was staying at the hotel, and enjoyed getting to know this personable and passionate chef.

Chef Daniel Tobien of Windigo Restaurant at the Fairmont Tremblant, Mont-Tremblant, CanadaWhat Chef Daniel Tobien loves most about the area is the wonderful selection of regional products available including the fresh trout from the nearby lakes, the seasonal game that includes caribou in September, as well as venison, and wild boar; and uses lamb and chicken raised locally. He incorporates local cheeses, maple products, and ice cider (ice apple wine) in his recipes and tries to keep a very bio and green kitchen, something that is not always easy in a large hotel. He is trying to make a difference ecologically and works with a local farm that employs handicapped people, to compost the entire restaurant's produce waste.

When not creating new recipes for the menu, which he changes 2 to 3 times per season, he enjoys fly-fishing for trout and even enjoys ice fishing in the winter, although he smiled when he said that his catch is strictly for home consumption. In his free time, he may also be found skiing the mountain with his 12-year old son, William.
