The Kilted Chef ~ Chef Alain Bosse

The Kilted Chef at Milwaukee Irish Fest

Alain Bossé, also known as the Kilted Chef, has travelled the world from kitchens to convention centres sharing his expertise and love for buying and eating local ingredients with people near and far. With his signature tartan kilt, proud Acadian heritage and undeniable flair for cooking with local, he has earned a reputation as Atlantic Canada’s culinary ambassador.

Chef Alain has cooked for global dignitaries and has worked in kitchens and on event stages alongside top chefs from around the world. He firmly believes that if you live local, then you should buy local. For more than a decade, Alain has promoted local commodities such as lobster, mussels, apples and wild blueberries to name a few. His travel has included trips across South America, North America, Europe and Asia too, giving enlightening and entertaining presentations. Alain also runs a busy consulting business where he helps restaurateurs and producers.

Alain has been a frequent guest instructor at culinary schools where his lectures focus on “Lobster and or Mussels 101”, which educate students on the use of sustainable Atlantic Canadian seafood. Chef Alain is also a frequent guest on radio and TV, a prolific recipe creator, food writer and cookbook author. He also offers private group cooking lessons and culinary experiences at his farm in Nova Scotia. Chef Alain is more than a food expert; he is a food industry expert whose experience in the kitchen and with senior management roles in the food & beverage industry allows him to share his expertise on the beauty of food and the business of food. If you haven’t had the chance to meet the Kilted Chef yet, you should. You’re guaranteed a uniquely educational and inspiring experience.
