Acadian Meat Pies on Recipe to Riches

Alcide Desveaux

Former Cape Bretoner, Alcide Desveaux, took home the big prize last night on CBC's Recipe to Riches.

Alcide Desveaux is a retired Canadian hailing from Cape Breton, N.S., which is also from where he credits his family recipe for Acadian Meat Pies.

Alcide's passion for cooking traditional foods is exemplified in his approach to ingredients and flavour combinations. Alcide's recipe earned him a spot on Recipe to Riches where he competed against the other top home cooks in the country in the savoury pie competition.

Recipe to Riches judges were instantly struck by the delicious taste of Alcide's dish. After successfully competing in cooking and marketing challenges, Alcide's savoury pie made him the episode finalist.

Alcide Desveaux beat out tough competition with his Acadian Meat Pie and that means starting this weekend, Alcide's Meat Pie will be a new President's Choice product at select Loblaw banner stores across the country.
