Eating My Way Through Canadian History At The Edible Museum
For the lucky Vancouverites who copped a ticket to The Edible Museum of Canadian Food and Wine, prepare to eat your way through this two-storey, multi-sensory pop-up happening tonight and one-night only.
I can't think of a better way to commemorate Canada's epicurean history than to enjoy flavours of premium Canadian wine and inspired dishes while walking through immersive landscapes and installations inside The Permanent Building.
During last night's preview, we sipped and tasted our way through the five exhibits at the pop-up museum to honour Canada's most awarded VQA wineries and iconic foods from some of Vancouver's favourite chefs. There were no shortage of top VQA wine brands to enjoy like Jackson-Triggs, Nk'Mip, and Black Sage Vineyard, thoughtfully paired with dishes that carry influences from French Canada to First Nations.
