Marc de Canck
From a Belgium family, and ”father-in-son” bakery, Marc de Canck has always been interested in the cooking profession. Still young, he begins his pastry training but soon joins the high-end kitchens. He opens his business in Belgium and California before finally landing in Sherbrooke, at only age 23, to expand all through Quebec.
