Renowned Okotoks Chef to join Sobeys


Blog by Marianna Kindrachuk & Don Blocka | January 28th, 2013


Chef Darren Nixon, who owned Divine restaurant in Okotoks for more than a decade, joined the staff at Sobeys at the end of December and is creating chef inspired handmade dishes in store adding a delicious new feature to the local market.
Darren wishes to bring gourmet inspiration to things people can pick up and take home and prepare or just heat up. The results have been amazing.
Okotoks demographic is ready for these gourmet dishes. Customers can pick something up and reheat it or have the proper cooking instructions to have a restaurant quality meal at home.
Nixon will also be hosting interactive cooking demonstrations in store which he hopes will encourage shoppers to not only try new flavours and ingredients, but also convince them cooking can be fun.
Sobeys management and Darren believe they have put together something unique and believe this offering will grow!
