Danny St Pierre’s culinary journey, which spans over 20 years, has been anything but ordinary. As a graduate from the École Hôtelière de Laval in 1994, Danny obtained his Advanced Culinary Arts degree from the ITHQ in 1998. After honing his culinary chops for two years at Toqué! Restaurant, he became chef at Derrière les fagots restaurant in Laval, where he perfected his signature creative, quirky cooking style. From 2005 to 2015 Danny has been the co-owner of Auguste, a restaurant located in the city of Sherbrooke, which is known for the “bistronomy” movement Danny helped to bring to Canadian palates. He is now the co-owner of the restaurant Capsa inspired by the Portuguese gastronomy located in the Boxotel, in the heart of Montreal's Quartier des spectacles.
Danny is the award-winning author of Dans la cuisine de Danny St Pierre, published at Les Editions La Presse, which was awarded first prize at Taste Canada in the Best General Cookbooks category as well as the Best Chef’s Cookbook Award- French Canada at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
Over the past ten years, Danny has become a fixture on Canadian television screens. He has travelled across the country from one ocean to the other, co-hosting the television series, Ma caravane au Canada, on the TV5 network. He also hosted the daily television cook show Qu’est-ce qu’on mange pour souper? for two years, on the Ici Radio-Canada Television, from 2013 to 2015. In 2017, Danny is on the air on Canal Vie as a co-host for Meilleur que le chef, and in the cultural magazine La belle gang as a chef collaborator.
