Food & Dining
Foodie alert! The cuisine scene in Edmonton, Alberta is ethnic, eclectic and creative, like the city itself. And with farms and market gardens surrounding the city, it's no surprise that farm-fresh local ingredients remain a priority.
Creative cooks are riffing on the traditional, filling their perogies with wild mushrooms, spinach and feta cheese. And instead of using beets for borscht, find them roasted and served with local sheep milk ricotta and pistachios. Find unique eateries where top chefs turn out everything from lamb confit poutine to Spring Creek beef steak with an authentic chimichurri sauce to warm wild mushroom salad with wheatberries and hazelnut pesto.
