Eric Pateman has grown his company from a one-man culinary concierge service into one of the leading ambassadors of Canadian cuisine. Beginning simply as Edible Vancouver in 2006, Eric widened his scope with a culinary artisan retail store and expansion to Edible British Columbia, located on historic Granville Island. 

In 2010, EBC evolved to Edible Canada and Eric's vision to introduce the public to the very best national culinary artisans was realized. Edible Canada is the product of Eric's insatiable passion for great food and wine, his extensive knowledge of the hospitality industry and an enthusiasm for exceeding expectations when it comes to customer service. 

A Vancouver native, Eric has worked in the hospitality industry for over two decades as a chef, hotel consultant, and entrepreneur. He is regularly sought as an expert on Canadian food and wine for research projects, cooking demonstrations and speaking engagements.
