Accolades Dining Room

Accolades is a student-run fine-dining restaurant at TRU. This hidden gem offers some of the best cuisine in Canada. Accolades has been awarded the “stars of excellence” year after year from the national restaurant guide, Where to Eat in Canada.

We have taken a local approach to our cuisine, with much of our food being regional and sustainable.

There is high industry demand for trained cooks, and our instructors work hard to ensure that the best chefs in the country come from TRU.

“Industry loves our students because of the real-life kitchen and restaurant experience we provide,” says Chef Ed Walker, Instructor in the Culinary Arts Training Program.

Budding chefs and hospitality students need a training ground. Accolades provides senior culinary students with a venue where they can provide discerning patrons with the latest trends and techniques in food preparation and service.
