We invite interested schools outside Quebec to commmunicate with our team to learn more about registration and implementation procedures.

Inter-school competition

The Kitchen Brigades workshops conclude with an inter-school competition where the best brigades from each region compete to win the title of best brigade in Quebec. The provincial final is held in the spring and is hosted by Ricardo Larrivée. A jury of top chefs and industry members will evaluate the brigades' creations and select the winning school.

In 2019, the provincial final was held at ITHQ, and École du Delta de Matagami from the Nord du Québec region won top honours!

Please note: for now, the inter-school competition is only organized in Quebec
