Edible Canada is located at 1595 Johnston St. in Vancouver, BC | 604.682.6681 | ediblecanada.com

The GOODS from Edible Canada

Vancouver, BC | Edible Canada’s own Chef Tom Lee was chosen by BC Place Stadium, Centerplate and Chef Ryan Stone to be the second guest chef featured on the suites menu for the 2012 season. From August 15th until September 29th BC Place offers suite holders a menu featuring bacon themed dishes created by Chef Lee. As an added bonus, suite holders who order from these menus will be placed in a draw to win a $250 gift certificate for Edible Canada at the Market.

Chef Lee’s menus change with the season and feature products from vibrant aisles at the market on Granville Island. Our brand new Coast to Coast – A Canadian Tribute to Bacon menu at our take-out window caught the eye of Chef Ryan Stone, and Lee was asked to share some of his popular bacon dishes with BC Place. Chef Ryan noted that he is “a big fan of your concept at Edible Canada, and am committed to utilizing and promoting local, sustainable products as much as possible at the stadium.”

The unprecedented popularity of the Tribute to Bacon window is based on the current global infatuation with bacon. All of the dishes highlight culinary traditions and fresh ingredients from here to Halifax with regionally inspired bacon-themed dishes. Selected items at BC Place include Bacon & Duck Rillette Poutine Canadian cheese curds, caramelized onions; BLLT – Bacon, Lettuce, Lobster & Tomato Bacon aioli, heirloom tomatoes, butter lettuce, brioche roll; and the Bacon Dessert Trio featuring Kitchening & Co. salted bacon macaroons, Fraser Valley Gourmet bacon almond butter crunch, and bacon ice cream with maple drizzle. By highlighting local culinary artisans in our menu selections, we hope to give these talented producers the widespread attention they deserve. Details after the jump… Read more

DINER: “Edible Canada” Launches With New Store And Sweet Bistro On Granville Island

Granville Island just got a hell of a lot better with the new Edible Canada complex that opened its doors yesterday. In addition to the new retail store, the bistro really is something to behold. There are some 86 seats inside with another 102 on the expansive patio. We dig the take-out window, lengthy bar and open kitchen, as well as the demonstration kitchen in the glassed-in private room (complete with roll down garage door). Owner Eric Pateman has curated a seriously impressive assortment of local ingredients and home-grown booze for the menu (take a bow, mister). As per usual with this brand, if its made in BC and of a high quality, Eric is very probably pimping it. Take a look and have a proper drool…

News from Scout supporter Edible British Columbia

Vancouver, BC | Edible British Columbia is pleased to announce that it will be opening an expanded version of its original retail concept at Granville Island in the spring of 2011. The expansion will include an increased shopping presence showcasing the best artisan food products of BC and Canada, an impressive demonstration kitchen to welcome BC and Canada’s top chefs, and a tapas and wine bistro, specializing in the healthy classic dishes that exemplify market inspired cuisine. Additionally, the space will include a Gourmet-to-Go section, a take-away window, and a vibrant patio space.

Edible At the Market will be centered on the Retail Store, continuing to celebrate the best culinary product offerings from coast to coast.

The exciting addition of a permanent demonstration/ production kitchen will allow Edible to continue to expand on its popular Market Dinner Series with many of BC and Canada’s top chefs.  This new space can accommodate up to 50 people, and is designed to operate separately while the rest of the business continues to run, making it ideal for afternoon tastings and seminars.  When the kitchen is not being used for a private event, customers can watch Edible’s team creating delectable foods – available for purchase and enjoyment at home.
The wine and tapas themed bistro and take-away component will be a welcome addition to the Granville Island dining scene – at a very affordable price. Edible At the Market will operate from breakfast through dinner daily, with an ever-changing Market-dependant menu. Read more

Services include our retail & online artisan food store, chef guided Granville Island Market Tours, demonstration guest chef Market Dinners, Gourmet Kayaking Weekends, and popular Amuse Bouche newsletter and blog.

Customer Feedback

“The tour and lunch were hugely successful. Feedback from the group – some of whom have been attending this conference for over 10 years – was that it was one of the best events ever. Thank you very much for your assistance in making the Saturday morning activity such a hit. I would not hesitate to recommend these tours and in fact will soon organize one with local friends – we also should be able to enjoy these special parts of Vancouver. Thanks again for your attention to detail.”
Private Granville Island Market Tour

“We were fortunate to have Edible British Columbia plan our honeymoon. Our 8-day trip was the best vacation of our lives. Eric worked with us to customize a honeymoon that offered relaxation, luxury, and culinary greatness. Every last detail was taken care of — hotel, car and ferry reservations (including the honeymoon suite at a Sooke B&B and a beautiful room at the Pan Pacific), dinner reservations at prime times and prime tables, picnics and hiking suggestions, and guided tours. Highlights included an extraordinary meal at West’s chef’s table, a romantic meal at sunset at the Pointe, and a dim sum tour of Richmond with Stephanie Yuen. It was terrific to have someone take such careful note of our desires and dislikes (our menus regularly featured favourite foods such as oysters and crab, and addressed food allergies), stay within our budget, and yet balance that with freedom and down time. Most importantly, after planning our entire wedding, we were able to sit back, eat, drink and most of all ENJOY, the beauty and of British Columbia. We’d return tomorrow if we could!”
Culinary Tourist

“The meal at West was awesome, the scallops and steak were just perfect and the wine was nice paired with each course. My wife was impressed that I had a consultant help with the planning of our anniversary meal.”
Culinary Tourist

“My wife and I are life-long products of the Eat Van melting pot, so we are no strangers to Asian food, but Tony succeeded in broadening our culinary horizons. Had we waded into the market’s food stalls without him, we would have stuck to the safe choices and not had the fun learning experience we had.”
Market Tour

“The event overall was an absolutely fantastic experience! Chef’s willingness to share knowledge and enthusiasm for food makes this event. To be totally honest, I would be willing to pay more for this experience – I think it is worth at least double when you consider the price of other cooking classes or comparable experiences. Best of luck to you all and I will definitely be in touch for future events!”
Behind the Scenes – Private Cooking Class

“Chef was amazing, personable, laid-back and knowledgeable! We had a fantastic time, great food and wine, wonderful people. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family. Thank you, Vancouver needs more culinary experiences like this!!”
Behind the Scenes – Private Cooking Class

“An excellent evening with every single thing meeting or exceeding expectations.”
Private Market Dinner

“What a superb evening — I only wish I lived closer as I would attend several each year. Thanks to Eric and his fantastic and entertaining staff – it was a very enjoyable evening!”
BC’s Best Market Dinner

“The guides performed magic with the preparation and presentation of each meal. If I were not there watching that they were actually preparing and cooking the food from scratch on the “Coleman stove”, I would have thought that they had used packed prepared food. The quality of the food and it marvelous taste had all of us longing for more… yummers. Both guides were very approachable, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional – they made the trip very, very enjoyable… an awesome experience indeed.”
Gourmet Kayaking Weekend

“I loved this tour! The stops we made at the different venues were informative and very yummy. I only wished I could bring the whole market home with me. After the tour my daughter and I went back to places we had stopped at, picked up items for our lunch which we ate out on the deck. Then I bought what I could bring back with me on an airplane. I would even take this tour again! I would hope that every visitor and person living in the area would take this tour! Thanks!”
