Agrius, Victoria, British Columbia
When Agrius owner Cliff Leir started his career it was as a baker in Victoria. He became known for his use of, then quite novel, Red Fife wheat that he sourced from an organic farm in Vonda, Saskatchewan, milled into flour and fed a city hungry for good artisan bread. He still considers himself a baker first and on his website provides links to everything from the flour he uses; how to build a mill and, finally, how to build a wood-fired oven.
Agrius is an natural off shoot of his next door bakery, Fol Epi Organic Bakery & Patisserie and has very quickly become one of the must-eat-at culinary destinations in the city.
Notably-honest and deeply-knowledgable Globe and Mail food critic Alexandra Gil gave huge kudos! ” I may not have eaten extensively from the daily changing menu, but every single bite was divine. From excellent beverages and service to all the locally sourced ingredients, in-house charcuterie and serious kitchen technique, Agrius is everything a great casual restaurant should be. And that is why it is receiving my very first four-star review.”
