Barbara-Jo's Seasonal Book Experience

       Would it not be wonderful, if four times a year, as one season evolves into another, you would open your post and find a delicious new book.  My idea for this initiative is to have you purchase a subscription of $150.00 per year, and at the beginning of each season you will receive a delightful surprise, a beautiful new book, personally selected by me.   The book may be full of recipes, or recipes and stories, travels with food, or a memoir from an interesting food lover.  It will most certainly be something special that you may not have thought about yourself.   And what a brilliant gift for a treasured family member or friend that lives to eat.

       I invite you to celebrate the seasons with me.  Please telephone 604.688.6755 to subscribe, Spring is just around the corner.

Yours 'til the book ends,  


Ps. we will post books anywhere in the world, but if you would rather come into to fetch your new friend, we will welcome you with a lively chat and first rate cup of tea.


Between the Leaves


We introduce to you a new initiative to our shop. This club comprises of 4 dinner sessions and one book.

When you sign on, you will receive the book. When we meet for the first dinner, you will have read the required quarter of the book and cooked at least three recipes.

At our get together, we will discuss the writing and recipes, while dining on a menu we have concocted from the book. 

Cost: $350 Includes your book, which I have chosen to be Nigel Slater's Year of Eating, and your meals. Dates are Wednesdays: January 20, February 17, March 16, and April 20. Space is limited to 12 guests.
