Riverside Country Club, Saskatoon
It’s a pleasure to welcome the Riverside Country Club to the roster of Food Day Canada where Chef Darren Craddock oversees the members-only dining room.
Darren Craddock, born in Toronto, raised in Ontario of British parents, moved to England when he was 15 to finish school then secured a 3 year apprenticeship under the tutelage of renowned British Chef, Kevin Cape, at the Relais & Chateaux Michelin rated property, The Bell Inn at Aston Clinton.
Over the course of the next 15 years Darren spent more time in England, Western Australia and Jasper, Alberta. Then transferring to Toronto Darren spent 4 ½ years as Executive Chef at the Radisson Admiral Hotel and held Executive Sous Chef positions at the Metropolitan and the Waterside Inn.
With his wife Tanya and children Emilie, Jayden & Chloe, Darren has now settled in at The Riverside Country Club, catering to the city’s business elite. Darren was the Gold Medal winner at the Saskatoon Gold Medal Plates 2012 competition and Silver Medallist in the 2014 competition, and was also named Saskatoon Chef of the Year 2015 by his peers, a followup to a similar honour in 2012. He capped the year with yet another win at the Saskatoon edition of Gold Medal Plates, the Canadian Culinary Championship.
