Meet the ChefDarrell

Chef Darrell Lorenz grew up on a dairy farm in Little Falls, MN. As a boy, he was inspired by the garden he grew & the animals he tended to. He wanted more & decided to take the step from growing to cooking.

While in high school, he worked under a Culinary Institute of America trained chef for four years at Jason’s Restaurant & Catering. Pursuing further education, he attended Le Cordon Bleu in Mendota Heights. After graduating in 2004, he was sous chef of Lancer Catering working banquets & weddings.

Escaping the traffic & congestion of the Twin Cities, he moved to Brainerd. Darrell’s experience includes Prairie Bay under Chef Mat Annand & fine dining cuisine in Avon, CO at Beano’s Cabin as Jr. Sous Chef.

With many years of culinary experience and the understanding of farm to table cooking, we are proud to have him in the Madden’s culinary family. Darrell enjoys fishing, catering, and creating fresh cuisine.

We are happy to announce Darrell’s culinary career is growing as well. Chef Darrell currently oversees Fairway’s Restaurant & The Classic Grill. Menus at both locations are sure to please.
