In John’s Memory

John Kostuik : 1966 – 2017

John Kostuik was a renowned chef in the Eastern Townships. He established a strong reputation in Europe and and mostly in Ireland, where he was nominated as Best Chef of the Year in 2010.

It is in Ireland, at Rathsallagh House, an establishment with its own kitchen gardens and orchards, that John developped his passion for a market style cuisine and where he was able to maximize the potential of a cuisine prepared with fresh and local produce.

He was co-owner of the Auberge des Appalaches since 2010, Chef John remained dedicated to this philosophy. Through his connections with “Chefs Créateurs” and “Créateurs de Saveurs”, he intended to continue to move ahead in this direction and provide fresh and quality menus to the guests of the Restaurant Les Appalaches.

Inspired by French cuisine, Johns’ creations combined perfectly tradition and audacity and were always suprising !
