"Keeping it local, seasonal, fresh & sustainable" has been Edible Canada's bottom line for years. And our new Chef de Cuisine, Albert Tran, will continue to showcase and incorporate approachable yet diverse ingredients grown on our bountiful lands into Edible Canada's new menu.

We're also excited to share with you that our spring menu has just launched; opening minds and mouths to different cultural perspectives and sustainable eating while paying homage to the finest selection of ingredients that BC has to offer!


CHEF DE CUISINE: ALBERT TRAN

Grilling Planks Calgary

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of our new Chef de Cuisine, Albert Tran. He's joining us from Sonora Resort, located on one of British Columbia's pristine Coastal Islands. His experience spans from modern Japanese in Ottawa and Spanish influences in Montreal to contemporary French and regional seafood inspired cuisine at the Marina in Victoria.

Working with the freshest local, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients of BC and preparing freshly caught spot prawns, urchin, crab, sturgeon, and salmon directly from the ocean outside the kitchen doors, gave Albert a perspective he continued to be inspired by while creating Edible Canada's unique and delicious new menu items.

This month, Albert and the team, are launching our Spring Menu, highlighting local producers and ingredients as well as influences from Eric Pateman's, President & Founder of Edible Canada, culinary travels.


SPRING FLAVOURS:
PLANT-BASED, CANADIAN SEAFOOD & MEAT

Grilling Planks Edmonton

Canada is a mosaic of flavours, ingredients, and people. Our brunch/lunch, and dinner menu is designed to showcase all of these.

Our spring menu includes elevated versions of Edible Canada's staple dishes including its famous poutine, gluten-free Arctic char fish & chips, and rhubarb mascarpone French toast. For the new spring menu, we will be serving 1/3 plant-based, 1/3 wild Canadian seafood, and 1/3 meat & game dishes.

New menu highlights include fried duck eggs, smoked meat sandwich, Quebec duck tartar, pork cheeks & waffle, sturgeon brandade, Westcoast shrimp & crab roll, textures of beets, ricotta gnudi, and many more mouthwatering dishes.

We are a dietary-restriction accommodating restaurant! Many of our menu items are plant-based, gluten-free or can be made gluten-free if requested.
