Edmonton's restaurants and cuisine mirror the tastes of the city's more than 50 ethnic groups.
- 100-Mile Diet - Ivor MacKay
One-hundred-mile diet-wise, I grew up doing that in Nova Scotia. That’s the way we lived. When I started doing it in Edmonton, it created a greater sense of community with the surrounding area.
- Cappuccino Affair - Patti Navarro
This story/poem occurred on April 29, 2000. That is a very important fact as the cafe I mention is no longer opened. This captures a special moment I had in Edmonton.
- From Scratch - Eva Koppelhus
So I really enjoy gardening. Even if we have been out at the bone bed working all day, I like coming home to my garden. And evenings are so nice in summer, because it’s light until late.
- On Life and Sushi - Ron Elmeleh
When Ron Elmeleh makes sushi he maintains a balance that is both appealing to the eyes and the mouth.
- Potluck - Nan Gai
When I first arrived she helped me with the transition to this culture. To the community, and school especially. It saved a lot of time, because when you’re new to a country, sometimes you just don’t know what to do.
- The Wild West - Dr. David Bressler
Edmonton is a young city in a lot of ways. I don’t want to say it’s the Wild West, but it kind of is. There’s a lot of opportunity for people who are ambitious and want to try and do things and make an impact themselves.
- A Bit of Italy in the Old Neighbourhood - Giuseppe Crudo
Giuseppe Crudo thinks everyone should be in love. So that's why he named his charming restaurant Cafe Amore - a place with a lot of love going on.
- A Chocolate Boutique - Kerstin Roos
Nobody else is really doing what I’m doing here. It was funny when I set up my suppliers for the store, because nobody from Alberta had ever ordered these chocolates. Some of the bars are exclusive to us.
- Establishing Roots - Alison Neuman
Edmonton is more than my home; it is a place that has nourished many a settler’s past and continues to provide opportunities for growth.
- Night at the Museum - Midge Landals
When I plan conferences, I’m always looking for ways to entertain the vets in their off time. They spend so much time in meetings, and it’s nice to do something just a little different in the evenings.
- The Aprikat Beer Story - Neil & Lavonne Herbst
The first apricot beer we tried was Pyramid Breweries’ Apricot Ale. It was a hot summer day and we were at a pub somewhere in Montana. We remember thinking, “Wow, we’ve got to try something like this ourselves.”
- Everyone Loves a Farmers' Market - Edmonton Farmers’ Market
You may not know this, but Edmonton is a bit of a foodie town. Our entrepreneurial growers of fresh produce stock the city's many farmers markets with plenty of locally-grown food.
- Passionate About Responsible Tourism - Laura McGowan
Edmonton is a Responsible Tourism destination. This is a shift from traditional tourism and goes beyond just being green, it supports the community socially and financially and much more.
