Celebrity Chef Craig Harding is the owner and executive chef of Toronto’s renowned Italian restaurant Campagnolo, hot spot La Palma and the newly opened Constantine.
Craig’s passion jumps off every plate which is why Campagnolo has received rave reviews and accolades including being named one of Canada’s best new restaurants by enRoute Magazine and landing a highly-coveted spot on renowned food critic Joanne Kates’ “Top 100” list annually since their first year of service. It’s also why, in a city where restaurants regularly come and go, Campagnolo continues to be destination dining after more than eight years.
And across the street from Campagnolo, you’ll find the widely acclaimed La Palma, which blends classic Italian with a laid back California vibe. In just under a year of service, the design-friendly restaurant has garnered consistent praise and landed a top 5 spot on the highly coveted Toronto Life best new restaurants list.
If the success of Craig’s first two restaurants are any indication, his new spot, Constantine, launched in spring 2018 and blending classic Italian with Mediterranean flavours is sure to become another culinary staple.
But Craig’s talents aren’t limited to back of house, he’s also a star in front of the camera, most recently appearing on Food Network’s Chef In Your Ear, TLN’s Chef’s Bar and TLN’s Opening Canada in celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday. Prior to that, he and fellow chef Rob Rossi starred in Opening Argentina and Opening Italy where they ventured to distant and remote locations to find the most authentic food possible.
