Colombe St-Pierre

It is said that a chef’s cuisine is the reflection of their personality. Colombe Saint-Pierre loves travel, adventure and is driven by passion. After 10 years or so spent exploring and discovering various culinary cultures across many continents around the world, her passion for food guided her back to her native village in the Lower St. Laurence region of Quebec. She is a self-taught woman of conviction with an independent spirit and penchant for perfection. Her “raison d’être” and the driving force behind her cooking is spirited promotion of the incredible diversity of regional culinary cultures, and raising awareness about the vital importance of environmental protection and conservation. After all, one’s food is intrinsically linked to one’s identity.

Women with Knives

This February, the Phi Centre is rolling out the red carpet for a whole host of culinary luminaries with a series of socio-culinary events that will highlight the female touch in the world’s top kitchens. The series will feature a conversation with Ana Roš, Colombe St-Pierre, Deborah A. Harris and Mitchell Davis, as well as culinary demos. Women with Knives is also a nod to the famous Italian chef Massimo Bottura, who delighted crowds at the Phi Centre in 2016 as part of the socio-culinary event series Theater of Life held to raise awareness about food waste.
