Marc Breton

Gladstone Hotel Executive Chef Marc Breton “Local Food Hero”

Chef Breton’s style of cuisine is based on using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients.  Breton and his team present à la carte and catering menus which celebrate eating locally and sustainably, supporting strong partnerships with local food producers.

Chef Breton learned his love of food from his French Canadian parents as he grew up cooking at home. He says, “My frustration is that what grows in your backyard has become a ‘delicacy’ sought after by Chefs. We need to collectively reconnect with local producers to turn the tables on what’s available for our kitchen tables”.

In 2007, the Toronto Food Policy Council recognized Chef Breton with a Local Food Hero Award for leading the Gladstone’s annual “Harvest Wednesdays” series of culinary events inspired by the hotel’s membership in a local Community Shared Agriculture Farm.

Chef Marc Breton is a classically trained French chef with over 30 years of professional experience. He apprenticed at the Windsor Arms in the mid 80s and attended George Brown College. Over the years, he has worked at many of Toronto’s favourite restaurants including Winston’s, le Bistingo, Mclean House and the Bellair Cafe. Most recently before coming to the Gladstone, he was Chef at the Rivoli for seven years.
