Renée Lavallée

Born and raised in Shawville, Quebec, Renée left home at an early age to attend Toronto’s George Brown College. After close to 25 crazy years in restaurants around the world, she now calls Nova Scotia home. After a brief hiatus to raise her family, she jumped back into the restaurant ring in Downtown Dartmouth to open The Canteen (which was featured on Food Network Canada’s Big Food Bucket List), followed by Little C. In April 2020, at the start of the pandemic, she and her husband/business partner Doug launched The Canteen Community Kitchen, which supplied over 10,000 meals to those in need—and then went on to launch The Canteen Cooks YouTube channel, which teaches viewers how to produce restaurant-quality food out of their own kitchens. With many accolades to her credit, Renée has been a spokesperson for numerous culinary brands and organizations, and has appeared as a contestant on Top Chef Canada Season 7, as well as a judge on the series Wall of Chefs. @feistychef
