Edible Canada Set To Table Unique Menu For 2016’s Dine Out Vancouver Festival


The GOODS from Edible Canada

Vancouver, BC | Edible Canada’s unique menu for the 2016 Dine Out Vancouver Festival is a foreshadowing of what is to come for the Bistro this year and beyond. Having just welcomed a new Executive Chef, they are using Dine Out 2016 to introduce something new and exciting to the Vancouver dining scene. Chef Richard Desnoyers brings both his French Canadian cultural heritage and a passion for celebrating all Canadian cuisine to the table. This year’s menu aims to highlight traditional country cooking, local produce, sustainable seafood and wild game from across the country. Diners can expect to taste an array of unique proteins including Elk Bavette Steak, Blue Goose Beef heart, Northern Divine Caviar and Alberta Oxtail. Canadian-inspired finishing touches, from a maple birch reduction to an Okanagan port & currant demi-glace, will also delight palates.

Edible Canada President, Eric Pateman, shares “We have carefully crafted a menu which we think is unique, inherently Canadian, and a celebration of both our culinary heritage and natural bounty. This has been our goal for years!”

The menu also offers suggested wine pairings for each dish and a number of add-ons for those diners looking to enhance their Dine-Out experience.

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!”
