Downtown—(February 8, 2017) Tonight's one-night only Edible Museum of Canadian Food and Wine event looks to be a multi-sensory, two-storey pop-up created to take patrons on a unique journey through Canada's epicurean history inside The Permanent building.
Edible is aiming to provide an immersive experience delving into Canada's culinary and viticultural landscape where guests discover the story behind some of Canada's most awarded VQA wineries and iconic foods from some of the city's most creative chefs.
At last night's preview, we tasted and drank our your way through the pop-up museum and its five playful exhibits celebrating the flavours and moments of our collective food and winemaking history.
The museum is broken into its different sections in order to best replicate the feeling of a natural history museum. Guests have an opportunity to observe and immerse themselves in several vignettes to capture specific influential moments of Canadian food and wine.
Edible features an interactive timeline containing fascinating artifacts and references about important Canadian wines and foods including the surprising origins of poutine and the creation of the McIntosh apple. These help illustrate how Canada as a nation has evolved together over the course of our 150-year history.
From Quebec sugar shacks to post-WWI kitchens, the various replicas of cultural settings provide a unique look into the backstory behind how our culinary personality came to be and how these stories connect to some of our country's most celebrated wines.
Here There Studio, the Edible Museum is an appealing exploration of Canada's contributions to dining culture while giving patrons the opportunity to sip and savour their way through our country's milestones.
The sold out event—additional entry times were added—happens tonight with proceeds benefiting the Greater Vancouver Food Bank's local food programs to provide assistance to those in need throughout Vancouver.
