Xavier’s story

Journey from childhood in France to Canadian citizenship

From memorable menus as Executive Chef at The Muse Restaurant and Home Tasting Room to an unforgettable run on season two of Top Chef Canada, Chef Lacaze has been one to watch in some of our city’s most revered kitchens.  Xavier’s culinary trek to Calgary began in his hometown in the southwest of France.  There, at the age of 15, he launched his career in fine dining. Xavier crafted the basics of classical French cuisine by spending three years at a Two Michelin Star restaurant in Pujaudran, France. Xavier’s career took him around Europe and the world with stints in Switzerland, the French Riviera, the French Alps, the Caribbean, and Los Angeles.

Fantastic food, excellent presentation all while maintaining an approachable feel. Xavier is very engaging and has always gone the extra mile to make sure our experience is A++. We have had several private dining experiences with XL cuisine, and Xavier continuously exceed our exceptions. Highly recommend!

Xavier is just incredible! We had him in for a private event and the seafood tower was to die for, and priced exceptionally. I am celiac and he was so aware of allergens, I highly recommend for anyone with diet restrictions. Thank you Xavier for a wonderful and delicious evening!

Xavier's food is undoubtedly some of the best I've ever eaten. His meals are exquisitely prepared, perfectly balanced, and incredibly delicious! I can not rave enough about XL Cuisine - from savoury to sweet, he does it all. Xavier not only creates memorable meals, but the experience he provides is top-notch. I would give him 10 stars if I could!

We had a 5 course dinner prepared by Xavier (XL Cuisine). It was one of the most superb dining experiences my partner and I have ever had. His passion for the food and the experience of the patrons really shines through. If you have the chance to experience Xavier’s cooking, and the experience that he provides, you certainly do not want to miss out!
