Charles Durand is a French guy, who immigrated to Montreal about a year and a half ago to study to become a chef. Although Montreal is known for its fine dining, Marko Lebeau found it ironic that someone from France, the world's culinary capital, would cross the Atlantic to study haute cuisine! Maybe it was the attraction to poutine and burgers, the guys joked, that drew this 22-year-old, dark eyed and sensual bi Scorpio to migrate to Montreal.
Taking in a mild February day, Marko and Charles decided to take a jog in the City's central Mount Royal Park, overlooking the city core and the outlying areas beyond. Taking a break in their run, Marko interviewed Charles at the top of the Mountain. The contrast in these guys' accents was cute. French and Quebecois accents are about as different as that of English spoken in Britain versus the US.Charles Durand
