Chef Carl Murray: taste of Saguenay-Lac St Jean
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.
