We are thrilled to welcome Edible Canada Restaurant’s Chef Richard, to Lepp Farm Market!Richard traces his roots back to the province of his youth, with French and Quebecois influences at the heart of his cuisine. He has a wide range of experience, and both a character and talent to match it. Passionate and proud of each detail in his dishes, he is at the same time approachable and welcoming to guests and his staff alike.Chef Desnoyers commands leadership in any kitchen, from his many years of diverse experience. He has managed his own restaurant in Quebec City, named Café Colette, for the better part of a decade. He spent years learning to cook West Coast cuisine in both California and Vancouver, and the list of establishments where he has hung his apron is like a bucket list of restaurants to try. He graduated at the top of his class at Trait-Carre school, catered for international celebrities such as S.A Albert of Monaco, Colin Powel, and Barbara Streisand, and has hosted radio and television shows for the CBC. You may also recognize his face from his ‘Big Breakfast’ segment on CityTV Edmonton offering cooking tips and recipes to the viewers. His most recent foray into the media universe was as the host of the popular weekly radio broadcast on the CBC entitled ‘The Wicked Chef’.
