Celebrating Edmonton’s food scene with some easy-to-make appetizers for your holiday get-togethers | Globalnews.ca

What’s Cooking, YEG?

Edmonton is known for being a hockey city, but it’s also a foodie’s paradise.

Jesse Woodland is the co-owner of Backstairs Burger and believes life starts at the kitchen table.

As he looks around the city, he believes the food scene is just a natural extension of what Edmontonians love about their community.

“In such a multicultural city, food transcends that,” Woodland said. “It doesn’t matter what walk of life you come from, what you do for a living or where you’ve been or what your cultural background is.

“Everybody can sit down and share a meal together and they can all enjoy that with each other.”

On Boxing Day, Woodland joins Global Edmonton’s Lisa MacGregor to cook up some easy-to-make appetizers and a mocktail that will be perfect for your holiday get-togethers.
