CHRISTIAN VIAU Executive Chef

Executive Chef Christian Viau was born in a small French-Canadian village in Ontario, Canada. He has a passion for cooking and exploring new culinary creations. This passion was first instilled at a young age when he was old enough to watch his mom cook dishes from scratch based on family recipes that were passed down for generations. He continued to refine his cooking skills in Lille, France and in Montreal, Canada. Christian was the Executive Chef & Co-owner of a French-Canadian inspired terroir bistro in Montreal. Christian received his training at the Institute du Tourisme et d’Hôtellerie du Québec and also has a Red Seal Certification in the Culinary Arts. Christian currently lives in Sacramento with his wife. They enjoy an active lifestyle, including traveling and sports (especially hockey).
