Joël Lahon, Inspirational Chef

Our pastry chef Joël Lahon was nominated as National Pastry Chef of the Year at the 67th Gala of the Society of Chefs, Cooks and Pastry Chefs of Quebec. (SCCPQ) which took place at the Musée de la civilisation.

Joël has a most inspiring journey and we want you to know about it.

A native of the Aquitaine region in France, Joël Lahon held his first position in catering in a major establishment with a Michelin star. His taste for travel and his curiosity led him to participate in the opening of establishments in major cities in the United States, the Bahamas, Japan and Australia. He has developed an exemplary rigor by cooking for big stars and a demanding high-end clientele.

Since taking up his post at Château Frontenac, he has been delighting our customers with his ever more surprising sweet creations. He can unleash his creativity on several occasions, including the holiday season, when he is invited to create a unique yule log for take-out Christmas orders.

Not only are the yule logs created by Joël Lahon and his team magnificent, but they are delicious!
