La Planque Restaurant, Olivier Godbout
This young chef, whose talent and creativity was discovered by the general public during the 2013 edition of the television series Les Chefs!, already has a solid background. He has worked at the restaurant of Hôtel La Ferme, in Baie Saint-Paul, At Panache, at Bistro B and at Le Cercle, in the Saint-Roch neighborhood, before accepting the challenge of becoming a partner at La Planque.
A tailor-made challenge for this lover of vegetables (he loves asparagus!), who puts stuffed eggplant and quinoa on the menu, along with duck breast, foie gras and Angus beef. When spring arrives, he lets loose with colourful and generous dishes overflowing with freshness and crunch.
Born in Saint-Ferréol-les Neiges, Olivier is known for his leadership and his ability to communicate. Along with his team, he creates a cuisine of proximity, ecologically responsible, with plenty of room for seasonal products.

Cidrerie Vergers Pedneault, Éric Desgagnés
Michel Pedneault [our picture], his sister Marie-Claire and his nephew Éric Desgagnés are the eighth and ninth generations to cultivate the ancestral lands on L’Isle-aux-Coudres, a heritage they work tirelessly to enrich.
This passion starts in the apple orchards, and the cultivation of other fruit trees. Today, the orchards include 6000 apple trees of 26 varieties, some of which are heritage, as well as pear, plum and cherry trees, along with Saskatoon berry bushes (more than 1000 trees). Their other passion is that of fruit brandies, including ciders, aperitifs and mistelles.
Home to L’Économusée de la pomme, they also produce excellent juices, butters, jellies, vinegars and jams.
