Food Day Canada
Mentoring the Next Generation
For over 26 years, we have been dedicated to championing a deep respect for local, sustainable ingredients and the people who source and grow them. The persistence of that vision is enabled by our long-standing philosophy of teaching and mentorship.
Every summer, River Café employs interns from a wide range of culinary institutes, and each of us grows and benefits from the exercise.
In celebration of Food Day Canada, this year's tasting menu (available all weekend) has been carefully crafted by our talented interns, in partnership with a senior member of staff. The menu not only celebrates ingredients and techniques, but is also an expression of each cooks unique background, experience, and nostalgia.
Gather around our table on August 4th as we join with Canadians
from across the country in a national celebration of local food.
