Daniel Vézina

Master chef Daniel Vézina invites you to a gourmet celebration of the finest in Quebec gastronomy. Join him for this elegant and exquisite "kitchen party".

Daniel Vézina has garnered international attention and praise ever since he opened his Quebec City restaurant, the Laurie Raphaël, in 1991. His mission: To create menus that are contemporary, creative and diverse. The success of his restaurant, a showcase for "made in Quebec" products and recipes, is the result of a team effort by this great chef and his wife and partner, Suzanne Gagnon, as well as host of suppliers and partners, from farmers and breeders to artists and designers. Memorable cuisine that's as delightful to the palate as it is to the eye, served on beautiful dinnerware from the laurie raphaël collection.

Daniel Vézina has hosted two TV food shows and writes a monthly food column for La Presse, in which he shares his passion for food and travel (geographical and culinary!). With three cookbooks to his credit and a workshop that's open to the public, he has become a household name in kitchens across Quebec.
