Guest Chef Market Dinners return: BC chefs take over Granville Island’s Edible Canada


Each year Edible Canada Bistro hosts local celebrity chefs in their demonstration kitchen during their Guest Chef Market Dinners. In the past local uber-chefs like Vikram Vij and Thomas Haas took over Edible Canada’s kitchens.

This year’s Guest Chef Market Dinner program includes some new faces: the Okanagan’s Joy Road Catering, Brad Cumming from the Westin Resort & Spa Whistler and Brian Skinner of The Acorn.

For a lucky two dozen guests, the guest chef will prepare a multi-course meal, doling out culinary tips as they cook. The meal is then paired with a selection of wine, beer or spirits hand-picked by Edible Canada’s bartender or sommelier.

This year’s Guest Chef Market Dinners are themed and are there some fun foodie nights lined up. This year’s themes include: maple syrup, wild foraging and aphrodisiacs with a twist. Chefs from Vancouver eateries such as The Re-Up BBQ, Yew Seafood + Bar and Cibo Trattoria are all part of this year’s guest chef roster.

Hosting the series for a sixth year, Edible Canada Founder, Eric Pateman, is committed to celebrating Canadian cuisine and the sharing stories of B.C. talent.

“It’s an honour to share our space with these talented chefs to showcase the food community at large,” says Pateman. “We open our kitchen to approximately 40 chefs a year, giving our guests a more personal experience and the opportunity to learn from them first hand. These dinners are incredibly popular due to the value and intimate setting.”

The dinner series starts on February 4 and runs until November 24. The Guest Chef Market dinner sell out fast so check out their weekly listings here and call to book one of the 14-24 spots available at each dinner. Looking to attend more than one?
