Meet our Chef
Raised in the farming and fishing community of Tignish, Prince Edward Island, Red Seal Chef Chanelle Doucette has long revered the bounty of flavourful local produce and delectable shellfish that Atlantic Canada has to offer. This appreciation ignited the early passion for cooking and baking that led her to enroll in the Culinary Arts program at The Culinary Institute of Canada. After graduation, Chanelle completed her internship in 2011 under the acclaimed Chef Valerie Morrison at The Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, British Columbia.
Chanelle returned to the island to hone her craft at The Dundee Arms under Executive Chef Patrick Young. Later, she worked at The Wheelhouse in Georgetown. Most recently, Chanelle joined as pastry chef under Executive Chef Leslie Flynn at Redwater Rustic Grille, bringing a wealth of knowledge with her. Chef Chanelle’s masterful refinement of contemporary flavours quickly became indespensable at Redwater, and in July of 2019, Chanelle was promoted to the position of head chef.
Outside of the kitchen, Chanelle enjoys running on the iconic red sand beaches of Prince Edward Island and writing articles that highlight local culinary events of interest. At work, Chef Chanelle and her talented team look forward to showcasing the top of available AAA beef, along with the Atlantic Canadian seafood and produce that first instilled Chanelle’s passion for cooking.
