Le Chocolatier's chocolate approach is pretty simple:

  • we craft fine chocolate creations, each one lovingly made by hand, using only the freshest ingredients and the finest Belgian chocolate
  • our chocolates are preservative-free, visually beautiful and have crazy-good flavour profiles
  • some see chocolate as a luxury, but we feel it should be part of every-day life (like enjoying your Grandmother’s best tea cup, not saving it only for special occasions)

We create our chocolate confections at our independent chocolate shop in Canmore, Alberta (close to Banff) in the Canadian Rockies.   Visit our website for more info.

Born in England and living in Canada for over 20 years, Russell's interest in Indian cooking comes from his dad who was born and raised in India. His Grandmother was Burmese and Russell spent much time as a small child hovering around the kitchen. The ultimate compliment for Russell today is a comparison to his Grandma's curry.

He is proud to say that he received the "thumbs up" from the British Army's Nepalese Ghurkas, world renown for their curries.

 Russell has had the pleasure of cooking for many British Soldiers over the campfire on his dog sled expeditions. Nothing like a good curry on a cold night out on the trail!

Bone to Broth was started by two moms from Okotoks, AB that wanted to provide our families and those around them with real foods that nourish and cleanse our bodies NATURALLY.
We started doing this after noticing how often people around us were unaware of the benefits of clean eating, collagen, and the amino acids that are found in gut healing bone broth.

As a water operator and registered technician in biology, she worked in a lab testing municipal water supplies. She started making soaps and shampoos in 2018.

Lone Pine Farms have been farmers for the last 500 years following the footsteps of our forefathers. When it comes to farming, we constantly strive to be good stewards of the land so it is there for years to come for the next generation.  Everything starts with good nutrition to grow a healthy animal or bird. That's why we grow our own grain to feed our livestock, so that we always know what we have. We feed our birds healthy grain so they develop healthy that in turn gives our customers healthy food. With added strict bio security regulations that keeps disease out, our chickens can grow well without medication, hormones or antibiotics. We don't use animal or soy products in our feed – only homegrown grain produced on our farm. Our birds are raised over a period of 7 to 9 weeks free run, and develop in outdoor pens from May to November. The chickens simply enjoy the great outdoors of Alberta, breathing only the fresh blue mountain air, in low populated countryside.  The end result is a juicy, tasty and nutritious chicken!

The word Ambrosial originates from Latin meaning 'especially delicious'. We started this journey to bring our unique cheesecake to cheesecake lovers that have tried it all.  It all began with a family recipe that has been passed down through generations and the desire to enjoy the tastes of childhood again. After experimenting with a few variations and learning to make our own cheese, we have refreshed this traditional and well loved dessert. Local ingredients were sourced as well as unique packaging to present a unique product.

Our cheesecake starts by handcrafting our cream cheese, in small batches. We select dairy from Canadian farmers and beet sugar which is grown and processed in Taber, Alberta. We still use whole eggs in our cheesecake which are cracked by hand and also sourced within Alberta. A few other wholesome ingredients and you get our smooth, light and luxurious cheesecake. You have not had cheesecake until you have had this one!

Dwarf Stars believes in creating a world where everyone can share chocolate.

We are two Calgary-based entrepreneurs (Kat & Gerrit) and have been operating since 2018. We are now selling in 140 retailers across AB, BC and ON. 

Gerrit is a red seal chef with over 13 years experience in the culinary industry while Kat has a background in business and marketing. To give you some insight into our business, passion and purpose I thought I'd share the origin story of our name, Dwarf Stars.

"Dwarf Stars Originals" was our first product line which looked like little space rocks (now discontinued). In brainstorming astrological terms we found Dwarf Stars. These are stars that don't look exactly like the other stars, or shine as bright, but still in their own right are classified as stars. The really cool thing is that Dwarf Stars can actually be incredibly powerful when pairs of them coalesce (or come together) - they can even create a supernova or large stellar explosion!

We love love loved this metaphor that reached beyond our quirky friendship (going on 12 years), beautifully capturing the brand messaging, heart and soul behind our new endeavour. We believe this message of inclusivity is more important today, than ever in our crazy world - that no matter what the outside looks like, what truly matters is on the inside.

That's why we use wholesome, natural ingredients like organic dry-roasted pumpkin seed butter and handmade chocolate made from cocoa mass and cocoa butter. All of our products are vegan, free from the top 10 food allergens with 2 sugar-free (keto-friendly) lines.

An Edible Life has been open in Canmore since 2014, creating healthy and nutritious prepared meals as well as supplying several cafes in town with baked goods. An Edible Life uses the healthiest and highest quality ingredients available with a strong emphasis on local and organic whole foods. As a Nutritionist, Carole (who owns and operates An Edible Life), wants to make sure those who are too busy (or don’t want) to cook are still eating well to keep them healthy while staying active. We offer a wide range of meals from soups, curries and shepherd’s pies to healthy treats such as vegan cheesecakes and our popular Goji Cacao Balls.

Urban Grub first opened in 2016 to rave reviews.  Our little bistro connected to our big kitchens quickly became the belle of the neighborhood and beyond.
We have steadily increased our line of carefully crafted and minimally processed foods, and are popping up in discerning stores all around the Calgary area.
No compromise is taken when choosing the ingredients for our products, and the quality shows, as does the unique ideas and award-winning cooking.
