Chef, entrepreneur and communicator Ricardo Larrivee will receive the title of Patriot of the Year 2023 in his region, Montérégie. This honor will be bestowed upon him later this month at a reception in Chambly.

“Thanks to him, millions of Quebecers gather around a table and share unforgettable moments,” said Christian Haché, president of the Société nationale des Québécois Richelieu-Saint-Laurent. Defender of our heritage, both culinary and inscribed in stone, he is a rooted man and entrepreneur and proud promoter of his city and his region. »

By awarding him this title, the organization wishes not only to highlight the impact that Ricardo has had on Quebec families and their eating habits, but also his involvement in the restoration of historic buildings in Old Chambly.

Ricardo announced at the beginning of April that he was leaving the small screen, without however ceasing his professional activities. His company remains, but it is the chef Isabelle Deschamps Plante who, from now on, will cook on the screen.
