Francois’ culinary inspiration is derived by his location. Capturing the essence of Jasper by seeking local ingredients and crafting dishes that celebrate the grand destination is a priority to his cooking style. He aims to tell the story of Jasper through his food and believes it is important to educate people on food waste and sustainable cuisine.
“When you are in a National Park, you have to be conscious about bringing the right ingredients from the right place.” Francois said. “You have to care about the animals and how you treat our nature and it is important to educate more people about food waste and be conscious of how we cook.”
As Executive Chef, Francois will oversee the diverse array of dining options offered at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, ranging from upscale fine dining in Orso Trattoria to casual alpine-inspired fare at The Great Hall. His innovative approach, coupled with his respect for locally sourced ingredients, is poised to tantalize the taste buds of both visitors and locals alike.
