Stephan La Salle, Chef
After 3 years of culinary school, Marc Lepine spent time working in Toronto, France, and Italy, before accepting his first executive chef position with Bartlett Lodge in Algonquin Park in 1998. Marc decided to move to Ottawa in 2001 with the intent to eventually open a restaurant. He received his sommelier certification from Algonquin College and spent 6 years working as executive chef for the Courtyard Restaurant, where he was twice named ‘Ottawa Chef of the Year’ by the Canadian Culinary Federation. Marc decided it was time to open Atelier in 2008, and while the restaurant was preparing to launch, Marc went to stage at Alinea Restaurant in Chicago. In February 2012, and then again in February 2016, Marc was named the Canadian Culinary Champion after winning gold at the finals in Kelowna, BC. In 2018, he was named ‘Canada’s Most Innovative Chef’ by Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants magazine.
