La
Salle
f.y.i.
The Albion Rooms
Ottawa native Chef Stephen La Salle loves his city and loves to show it off. As Chef of The
Albion Rooms at the Novotel Ottawa Hotel, La Salle not only gets to showcase the bounty
of this region to visitors of Ottawa but to flocks of locals as well.
The cooking spark came to La Salle from a summer job in the Byward Market and
after working with embassy chefs, La Salle enrolled in Algonquin College’s Culinary
Management program. From there he’s worked at restaurants such as Whalesbone
and ARC Lounge at ARC The Hotel before landing at Novotel Ottawa as the opening
chef of The Albion Rooms.
La Salle’s food is British-influenced regional cuisine and he draws
from Upper Canadian history and the Albion’s history as an
inn and tavern to provide a democratic menu for all tastes and
experiences. Working with the best regional offerings,
La Salle creates memorable experiences for locals and visitors
alike from simple, quality ingredients and creative
flavour combinations.
What would people be surprised to find in
your kitchen?
Cattail hearts, spruce trips and other
foraged edibles.
The place is burning down; you can only
grab three things from the kitchen.
Assuming my staff has made it out safely,
my recipes, my knives and a bottle of wine
because, given the circumstances, it’s
probably been a rough day.
Favourite guilty pleasure?
Buffalo wing sauce. Not solely for wings,
great on crispy fried rabbit livers too.
What is your motto?
Cooking is comprised of three things: art,
technique and most importantly love.
What do you value most in a cook?
A strong technical understanding of
food and how food behaves, a passion
for flavours and their combinations
and a strong passion for hospitality.
You need
on a desert island?
Ontario craft beer.

HOW TO REGISTER
To avoid disappointment, please register early! To purchase your tickets, please call or visit
the Customer Service Desk at the desired location. Payment must be received in person
prior to the class date. Spaces are limited.
We reserve the right to cancel or postpone classes (in which case, participants will be notified and fully
reimbursed or offered a credit). A refund or transfer is available up to five days before class(es) begin.
No refunds or transfers for missed class(es). Participants must be 19 years of age or older.
Please note: Events are subject to change, as are advertised recipes. Call the store in advance for
confirmation.
In accordance with Alcohol and Gaming Commission guidelines, beverage alcohol samples are offered
in limited quantities. Customers will receive one sample only of each product. Seats in classes cannot be
reserved, nor can we ask class participants to relinquish or change their seats to accommodate groups.
We suggest you arrive early to ensure your group is seated together.
Full-meal Classes feature full portions of the recipes prepared.
Aroma is an important component of all beverage alcohol tastings. We recommend attendees refrain from
wearing perfume, cologne or other scented products.

RENSEIGNEMENTS SUR L’INSCRIPTION
Inscrivez-vous tôt, car les places s’envolent rapidement! Pour vous inscrire et acheter
vos billets, veuillez vous rendre en personne au comptoir du Service à la clientèle de la
succursale qui tient l’activité avant le jour de sa tenue. Le nombre de places est limité.
Nous nous réservons le droit d’annuler ou de reporter les activités (le cas échéant, nous avisons
les participants, puis nous les remboursons ou leur offrons un crédit). Vous pouvez obtenir un
remboursement ou effectuer un changement jusqu’à cinq jours avant le début de l’activité. Aucun
échange ou remboursement ne sera offert pour les activités auxquelles vous ne pourrez assister.
Les participants doivent être âgés de 19 ans ou plus. Veuillez prendre note que les activités peuvent
faire l’objet de changements; il en va de même pour les recettes annoncées. Appelez la succursale
avant l’activité pour confirmer.
Conformément aux règles de la Commission des alcools et des jeux de l’Ontario, les échantillons de
boissons alcooliques sont servis en quantités limitées. Les participants recevront un échantillon seulement
de chaque produit. Les places ne sont pas assignées et nous ne demanderons pas non plus à quiconque de
changer de place pour accommoder un groupe. Si vous participez à une activité en groupe et souhaitez être
assis ensemble, planifiez d’arriver tôt. Des portions complètes des plats préparés seront servies lors des
cours comprenant un repas.
Le sens de l’odorat est très important lors d’une dégustation de boissons alcooliques. Afin d’assurer à tous
les meilleures conditions de dégustation possibles, veuillez ne pas porter d’eau de toilette ou d’autres
parfums. La LCBO s’est engagée à assurer des services d’excellente qualité à tous ses clients, y compris ceux
ayant un handicap. Si vous avez des demandes à formuler à ce sujet, veuillez en aviser le représentant au
moment de votre inscription à l’activité.
