Sébastien Benoit will celebrate his 30-year career in front of the camera in 2024. The affable host also has other anniversary memories to highlight: 25 years of working in radio, including 20 years at Rythme-FM, and 15 years of being alongside With his mistress too. That 10 years of Food shots.
Food shots Also returning to Zeste on Friday, and to highlight a decade of fun “discovering and sharing places of gastronomic happiness”, it's his friend Benoit Roberge – his first guest of 2015 – who takes the helm of the show for one episode. And so Sebastian makes room for the game by sharing four titles that he “really loves.”
“I didn't think I would make it to 10 seasons Food shotsBut after the first show, I realized that I loved doing this show. “When we love a project, when we love the result, when we love the people we work with, of course we hope that it will last as long as possible,” said Sébastien Benoit in an interview with QMI.
At 51 years old, he is happy to continue in this profession and feels grateful to have been able to touch it all.

“What I want is to continue doing what I love and what I am most proud of is that I have been able to host in different areas. I have not been pigeonholed. I am lucky with what I do, as I can make a living from it without having to worry, and work with people I love. I have a baby girl and I'm very proud of her, she's a blonde with whom I celebrated my 15th birthday and things are going very well. Honestly, I'm almost embarrassed sometimes because I'm so lucky!
Sébastien Benoit says he cultivates a combination of “positivity and innocence.”
“I'm not esoteric in life, but it is true that the positive energy you bring into your life will come back to you.”
Fun holding the helm Food shots It is triple, according to the host.
“It's a pleasure to discover restaurants, artisans and guests with whom I spend 14 hours chatting in a relaxed way. It allows you to get to know them from other angles.
