Festival: February 2013 Archives
Sunday February 24, 2013
Montréal en Lumière is putting the spotlight on Argentinian cuisine over the next week.
And that means we have the pleasure of welcoming into studio one of Latin America's most famous chefs, Francis Mallmann - who is also the honourary president of the festival.
But - ironically - he first established his reputation as a master of French haute-cuisine.
Due to a misunderstanding with the festival's management, Francis Mallmann left Montreal early but he spoke with Sonali Karnick before the incident about his passion for grilling.

This morning, we meet one of the emissaries of Saguenay-Lac St Jean cuisine who's in town for Montréal en Lumière. Carl Murray is the owner of the Restaurant du Moulin in the historic village of Val-Jalbert.
Carl Murray grew up in Roberval, but he pursued a career as a chef in Montreal and Quebec City, and in France. Along the way, he earned a little notoriety in New York City for daring to create a cheesecake made with Quebec cheddar cheese. Then a few years ago, he returned to his roots - back to Roberval - to open up a fine-dining restaurant, where they feature regional produce and cuisine.
Carl Murray will be preparing a regionally-inspired meal tonight at the festival in Montreal.
