Please sign this petition to have the City of Edmonton declare the Green Onion Cake the "Official Dish of Edmonton"! Can we get 5000 Yeggers to support this worthy cause? Why? Why not!?!?

You can check out some rationale at www.greenonioncakes.com/category/history

Together maybe we can make this happen:

Every citizen of Edmonton should know the answer to the question “I’m coming to Edmonton, what should I eat?”

We could see our tireless leader Mayor Iveson in full regalia. I see Siu To on the stage, as well as some of our prolific Edmonton Journal and Edmonton Sunfood writers. Maybe Stephanie Dubois and Sarah Hoyles (for their early support and promotion). Judy Shultz the first reviewer of the EGOC. Shirley Lowe, Edmonton’s venerable historian laureate. The eternally helpful Mary Sturgeon, of Make Something Edmonton. Linda Tzang, of the Royal Alberta Museum who publicly introduced the green onion cake as an “Edmonton Thing” . And maybe Edmonton’s unofficial chronicler Todd Babiak can write the story.

A local artist could unveil a tribute piece to our fair EGOC.

We could have a photo op of everybody digging in – HARD.

Come on people! Let's get 'er done

    Lived in Edmonton for 28 years and grew up on these.. first had them at the "Mongolian Food Experience" which was at that time in the Glenora district, they offer them everywhere these days, the best place to have them now is Good Buddy IMO,. they are fluffy/puffed up there and they serve them with vinegar + chile oil!
