At the start of 2015 I made a concious decision to change my focus on the blog and in my photography by shooting and sharing meaningful projects and (hopefully) quality content. As 2014 drew to a close, I realized that there were a few projects tumbling around in my head, and after months of planning and coordinating, I am finally ready to share one such project.
Since moving to Ottawa, I have learned that the city has many thriving movements, from music, to craft beer, to food. Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver tend to steal the bulk of the limelight when it comes to star chefs, great food, and dazzling restaurants; but with its quiet confidence, Ottawa has a food scene that measures right up there with the best in the country. And don’t just take my word for it, the New York Daily News agrees.
While doing some research for my projects, I stumbled on a chef collaborative called the Bytown Chefs Collective (BCC). The Collective is formed by seven of the best young Ottawa chefs who host events that raise money for the community, as well as showcase their collaborative efforts on preparing stellar menus.
Over the coming months, I will be shooting each member of the group in their respective kitchens throughout Ottawa. Today’s post features Paul Dubeau, Head Chef of five kitchens here in the city – all four Clocktower Brew Pubs, and Stella Osteria.
I hope you enjoy…
