Oils, Vinegars, and Truffle, Oh My! Evoolution Canmore at this Year’s Uncorked
If you haven’t had the chance to swing by Evoolution on Main Street, Canmore, you’ll definitely want to pop in during this year’s Canmore Uncorked Festival. Not only will their bread bar be open for tasting along with their delicious and diverse oil and vinegar selection, they will also be offering a discount on one of their hottest items. Before we spill the details on their Uncorked offering, let’s chat a bit about how this unique shop came to be.
We sat down with Weronika Kundera to learn about Evoolution’s background and what they’ve got in store for Canmore Uncorked 2019. The business is about six and a half years old. It was founded by three Alberta boys from Edmonton who grew up playing hockey together, Weronika told us. “Shaun, our CEO, and his wife went to Italy for their honeymoon and realized the simplicity of good ingredients, how much better a dish is with a focus on quality. He wanted to bring some of that back home with him. He looked more into it, found our supplier, and reached out to his friends. Since then we’ve expanded. We have 2 shops in Edmonton, 1 in Saint Albert, Canmore, Banff, and Calgary. It’s grown quickly! The Canmore location is three and a half years old.”
Because we are beyond passionate about unique ingredients, bold flavours, and experiential eating, we couldn’t be more delighted to have Evoolution as part of Canmore’s Main Street experience and Canmore’s Uncorked Festival for another year. Here’s what they’ll be offering for this year’s event:
“We will be doing a $12 experience this year. It’ll be the truffle popcorn which is one of our best sellers!” They will be selling their little popcorn kits (regularly $18) for $12 throughout Canmore Uncorked 2019. “It’s a butter infused olive oil which is dairy free, it’s a very buttery flavour but much less fat. Also, a truffle sea-salt. They just shave black truffles into the sea-salt” she told us. Though this combo is absolutely divine on top of popcorn, it is also great on other things such as “mac and cheese, proteins, vegetables, etc.”
Again, if you haven’t popped into Evoolution and indulged in some of their decadent products, this is your chance! The truffle popcorn is truly life changing. You can thank us later!
