Thousands of miles from his birthplace, Chef Stéphane Wild has erected a culinary alter to Alsace at Bistro Chez Sophie. Since the French-bred traditionalist set up shop in Winnipeg’s French Quarter seven years ago, he has become locally renowned for his time-honoured family recipes and consistent, flawless execution. With an arsenal of butter, cream and cheese the sincere, proud chef treats diners to a taste of his heritage. Each indulgent béchamel-smothered smoked salmon crepe and fluffy, soufflé-like cheesecake is a masterful execution of practiced and proven ‘true cooking’. 284 ave de la Cathédrale Ave, 204-235-0353.
