Congratulations to Dennis Johnston and Jean Marc Riant, chef and head baker respectively from Fid Resto (1569 Dresden Row, 422-9162) and Boulangerie le Vendeenne (Halifax Farmers' Market, 1496 Lower Water Street), who have both been inducted into one of the world’s most prestigious culinary organizations.
