Chef Francis Wolf's Ambitious Terroir-Driven Quebec Cuisine

Le Hatley Restaurant at Manoir Hovey, a lakeside Relais & Châteaux property, reflects Chef Wolf's passion for the region's history, its bounty, and its natural beauty. His culinary philosophy is inspired by what he has identified as seven distinct seasonal flavor profiles that celebrate the ingredients that are abundant in Quebec's rivers, lakes, forest and fields.

Chef Wolf has been an integral part of Le Hatley Restaurant's kitchen team at Manoir hovey since 2001. He began his culinary apprenticeship in his home province of Quebec, going on to hone his skills at celebrated New York's restaurant under the auspices of chefs like Alain Ducasse, Daniel Boulud and Charlie Palmer, and later in San Francisco with Gary Danko.

A bold new approach to Canadian cuisine

SPRING – Tree to Table

1. Birch

The abundance of birch trees at Manoir Hovey makes it ideal for birch syrup and vinegar production. Le Hatley is quite possibly the only restaurant in Canada to engage in this practice.

From the nearby Farm Au Pied Levé, Goat Calf is another Chef Wolf’s favorite higlighted in his Spring Menu

Francis and his team are passionate about foraging on the property grounds. In season, you are invited to follow them and learn about wild edibles.

In addition to the abundant local production of everyday organic produce, Le Hatley’s menus are also enhanced by Quebec Sea Plants in summer months, such as Sea Asparagus, Sea Spinach and fresh Seaweed.

FALL - Harvest

6. Poultry & Fowl

Chef Wolf is enthusiastic about a variety of locally raised free range birds, also from a local Farm Au Pied Levé. Examples include Guinea Fowl, Goose and Wild Turkey. Another true highlight of our menus is the exceptional Foie Gras from La Canardière.
