As we explore 150 years of Canada, a unique pop-up event – Edible Museum was open last week for one day only and it focused on Canadian food and wine history by immersing guests in Canada’s epicurean history.

Guests were able to taste and drink through a 2-storey pop-up museum of 5 playful, multi-sensory exhibits to explore the flavours and moments that make Canada more than just poutine. Canada has such a plethora of ingredients that has influenced our diet. They also showcased some of the most awarded VQA wineries.

The evening started off with Steller’s Jay Pinnacle Sparkling to welcome guests into the pop up.

From French Canada to First Nations, this was an exciting way to experience Canada’s land, sea all under one roof. They picked a pretty unique venue at The Permanent as well as the selection of chefs and wines.

The Edible Museum sold out quit quickly prior to the event. For $22, it was a pretty good price for the event and to be able to try a few drinks and dishes. All ticket sales from this pop-up was donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
