Episode 24: Darren Cheverie/Life of a Sensitive Cook

On this episode, I traveled outside of Edmonton for a stop to my favorite new restaurant, Chartier out in Beaumont. And this time it wasn’t to chow down on their cinnamon buns, or fresh bread. But it was to sit down with its owner, Darren Cheverie. Now Chartier began its life as the most successful crowdsourcing campaign in Canada. Darren and his wife and co-owner Sylvia, put a lot of love sweat and tears to make Chartier come to life. And now 11 months into its life the Cheverie’s wanted to give made Chartier a place you need to visit. But besides their amazing story of restaurant success, they also wanted to shine a light on an undocumented problem: addiction and negative mental health. Especially in the food industry. Darren’s story of loss and grief allowed him to put his money where his mouth is, by affording his staff a mental health fund, which they could use however they like.
