His involvement in the culinary world started n his teen years in Gatineau and evolved into studying French Cuisine at Montreal’s Institut de Tourism et D’Hotellerie du Quebec. Jason’s studies led him to an apprenticeship in France where he learned local cuisine, how to create menus and more importantly, how to run a restaurant. When Jason returned to Montreal, he briefly apprenticed at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel but then made the move to Le Café Nouveau Monde. His next position at Boris Bistro as Head chef garnered excellent reviews for the restaurant and he began making his culinary mark. Jason came to ARC The.Hotel in January 2005 where he quickly became sous-chef. In March 2006, Jason rose to Executive Chef where his passion, inventiveness and love of a challenge have brought kudos for the culinary team at ARC The.Hotel.
