culinary labs Series

Culinary Labs is a four-part series in which chefs don lab coats and perform experiments with food, turning their kitchens into laboratories that produce radically new dishes to benefit the taste buds of all humankind.

A partnership between Edmonton chef David Leeder and the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, the events are intended to increase awareness of Edmonton’s culinary industry and talent, and bring vibrancy to Edmonton’s downtown core. 

The Culinary Lab Series brought together 16 organizations through sponsorship and created over 100K of economic impact. Post Secondary students had the opportunity to work alongside Canada's top chefs, and local businesses were engaged to provide local Canadian ingredients.  The spaces also featured Edmonton Made designers and local musicians, adding to the overall experience.

Culinary Labs drew international stakeholder attention and brought in national attendees.
