His travel has included trips to South America, Europe, Asia, United States and Canada giving presentations that are both enlightening and entertaining to Chefs, future Chefs and owner- operators on the use of Atlantic Canadian products and their flexibility.

His passion for the “buy local, eat local” philosophy is apparent in his recipe development, menu engineering and work with producers and processors. One of his passions is going into elementary schools and teaching this philosophy to the upcoming generation, Alain believes that starting good food habits at a young age is the cornerstone to a healthier future and that it is our youth who will ensure that the food industry will begin to be held accountable for the food that we eat tomorrow.
