Alexis Goertz is a Canadian born lady with a penchant for adventure, and experimentation!

World traveler, artist, urban-rooftop-farmer, scavenger, gleaner and microbiological enthusiast with a curious set of taste buds. It holds an infinite appeal to eat unusual things, things that are often overlooked and discarded but have unique tastes and textures. A modern, highly processed diet excludes a lot of things people used to eat more commonly in North America and still do more often in other parts of the world. The forgotten foods are usually the most nutritious items.

Years of traveling and cultural collisions have led to the formation of Edible Alchemy – where participants are invited to explore the microbial universe through taste, smell, touch and discussion.
