Reading about the Canadian culinary scene is one thing, actually living it is another. Eric eats, sleeps and breathes culinary travel and more often than not, he is elsewhere in the world telling the story of Canadian cuisine or leading others on culinary adventures. As part of his role at Edible Canada, Eric offers culinary travel experiences that showcase the ingredients, talent and products of this country, or in collaboration with other great chefs around the world.
Many often dream of experiencing Canada’s North, yet few have ventured far enough to discover the beauty and way of living that is strikingly different from the rest of the country. This is your opportunity to explore this part of Canada in its raw and wild form. Expect the unexpected, and prepare to be immersed in a landscape and culture which is largely unknown.
Edible Canada’s founder and President, Eric Pateman, will once again be hosting a small number of guests in a private jet trip to experience and taste northern ingredients and flavours in a series of signature tasting events throughout the trip. These iconic signature dinners truly showcase the best of each region by working directly with local chefs, producers, and communities.
