Rémi grew up in the Kootenays and moved from Castlegar to Nelson in 2007 to attend the Music Program.
While washing dishes at a local restaurant, he fell in love with cooking and attended PC1&2 shortly afterwards. He then pursued cooking as a career, moving to Vernon to work in a Hotel and Conference center, apprenticing under skilled Chefs for four years. He finished his schooling in Kelowna, at Okanagan College, acquiring Red Seal status after moving home to Nelson in 2017. He worked three years as the Executive Chef of Finley's and Sage, mentoring cooks from diverse backgrounds.
Rémi is excited to begin sharing his passion for cooking and guidance through the industry for aspiring chefs at Selkirk, at the Campus that started it all for him. He lives in Nelson BC with his partner Annick, daughter Mael and Duke the dog. He is passionate about music, hiking and learning.
