Chef Pierre A. Richard

Chef Pierre, New Brunswick, Canada
Little Louis', Moncton

Chef Pierre Richard was inspired by local ingredients at an early age in Moncton, where he joined in the planting and harvesting the family garden with his mother and cooked family meals. After apprenticeships at numerous AAA/CAA Diamond restaurants, he received his Red Seal Certification at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). His teamwork and artistry has resulted in Little Louis’ being awarded Four Diamond Restaurant status by AAA/CAA. He creates exquisite flavours with a Modern French Cuisine. His love of all things local is evident with his most recent award for Food Innovation from Food Day Canada. Today, in addition to enhancing the Little Louis' Dining experience, he’s sharing his knowledge with culinary students. His recipe (below) uses smelts, a fish most commonly caught ice-fishing on nearby Northumberland Strait.
