Our Team

Eric Pateman
Executive Chef & President

Eric Pateman has grown his company from a tiny one-man culinary concierge service into one of the leading ambassadors of Canadian cuisine. Beginning simply as Edible Vancouver in the spring of 2005, Eric widened his scope beyond city limits with a culinary artisan retail store and expansion to Edible British Columbia. In 2010, only 5 short years after the company was founded, EBC took another big leap and became Edible Canada. Eric’s vision to introduce the public to the very best Canadian culinary artisans was realized.

A Vancouver native with a lifelong passion for food and wine, Eric has worked in the hospitality industry for over 15 years both as a chef and hotel consultant and has rated restaurants for the Mobil Travel Guide. Eric’s own culinary travels have taken him throughout North America, to the UK and to Africa where he has sought out unique culinary experiences. Edible Canada is the product of Eric’s fervor for great food and wine, his extensive knowledge of the hospitality industry and an enthusiasm for exceeding expectations when it comes to customer service. Eric was named as one of Business in Vancouver’s Top 40 Under 40 Business People in 2007, and to Western Living Magazine’s list of the Top 40 Foodies Under 40 in Western Canada in 2008.

When Eric isn’t leading the team to a new taste, he’s home in Squamish with his favourite leading ladies — his wife and 3 daughters.
