Fresh off a post that outlined the troubles at Moxie's, from excessive health code violations to alleged discriminatory hiring practices, Eater Montreal spoke to Laurent Godbout today about his relationship with the "premium casual" chain from Calgary.

Moxie's, or Moxies Grillades Bar in Quebec, has been the flagship sponsor of Canada's Bocuse d'Or entry since 2006. The biennial event is considered one of the most prestigious culinary competitions in the world, with participants like Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud, both of whom helm the current U.S. team.

As it turns out, Canada's representative for the 2015 Bocuse d'Or is Godbout. The Chez L'Épicier chef elucidated on the terms of his Moxie's partnership, which includes appearances and recipe development.

Le lien est que j'ai remporté la partie canadienne de la compétition la plus importante au monde. La CCFCC [Canadian Culinary Federation] qui gère le tout a un sponsor principal qui se nomme Moxie's avec qui je devrai faire des apparitions et une quinzaine de recettes. Voilà le lien. Les pays d'Europe ont des budgets allant jusqu'à 1 million d'euro et nous avons à date Moxie's. Si jamais vous pouvez nous aider à amasser 200,000$ (objectif visé) je pourrai avec plaisir vous rencontrer et en discuter.
