Well, if you still don't know Martin Picard, I will introduce you to a great chef with authenticity and passion. Chef Picard is an excellent chef, but due to a lack of interest in culinary art, not all Quebecois people know of him.

In French, there is an expression: "Un prophète n'est jamais reconnu dans sa propre patrie." What this means is that a prophet is never recognized by his people. Picard embodies this expression; he is a world-renown chef and yet not fully recognized in his homeland. Most Quebecois have a hard time believing in their stars and it is time that we show them the real talent emerging from "La Belle Province".
