Food Culture in Western Canada: Using Architecture to Define a Local Cuisine Through the Farm to Table Method
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis focuses on food culture in Edmonton, Alberta, and explores how architectural intervention may be informed by the farm-to-table method in order to create a more local cuisine. Edmonton is a city with diverse heritage, not only inhabited by Aboriginals, but a number of British settlers and Eastern Europeans, as well as Chinese. While all of these cultures had implemented their own food traditions within the area, they all had one commonality: the use of local food and local taste. With this thesis, the intent is to research and analyze the current issues of food in the city, and develop a centre in one of the most multicultural regions of Edmonton to serve as a catalyst for a more local food culture once again.
