Stephen Masse, Sous Chef from The Victor (Parq Hotel): Stephen’s culinary career was sparked by the rush and satisfaction of cooking for others. 8 years later, he continues to enjoy cooking - especially with an outdoor grill BBQ. When he’s not in the kitchen, Stephen is out hiking, kayaking, or playing football. Find him at the Victor inside Parq Casino.
