Guest Chef: Marc Lepine is the Chef and Owner of Atelier in Ottawa. In 2009 Atelier was named one of Canada’s best new restaurant in enRoute magazine as well as one of Ottawa’s top ten restaurants by Ottawa Magazine. In November 2011, Marc won Gold at the annual Gold Medal Plates competition in Ottawa, allowing him to advance to the Canadian Culinary Championships, where he also won Gold, beating out 8 other chefs.
