Alongside Jennifer Warren-Part, Charles Part has devoted his life to the important role good food plays in everyone’s lives. Their first restaurant together was Loons in Toronto from 1986-1993. They then moved to Chelsea, Québec, and opened Les Fougères, which is now in its 25th year. Their menus are hyper-seasonal and hyper-local drawing from garden, farm and forest.
In 2003, they added a Gourmet Food Store. In 2013, they built an artisanal production facility from which they distribute natural prepared foods across Quebec. Along the way an award-winning cookbook was written. All their endeavours have been driven by their commitment to offer alternatives to processed, industrial foods.
