Join one of Edible Canada’s chef-led tours to sip and snack around Vancouver’s most intriguing culinary neighbourhoods in the company of a local food pro. Sample barbecue pork buns and jasmine tea, followed by a dim sum lunch, in the markets and eateries of Canada’s biggest Chinatown. Or meet the vendors at the Granville Island Public Market, where dozens of stalls sell everything from artisanal cheese to chocolate, bagels to burritos.
After the tour, stop by Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks, located a short walk from Granville Island, to browse through thousands of popular and rare cookbooks, or take a cooking class in the in-store kitchen and create a tasting menu inspired by select cookbooks.
And don’t miss Barbara-Jo’s neighbours: Les Amis du Fromage, one of Vancouver’s top cheese shops, and the Patisserie Lebeau, makers of luscious Belgian waffles.
