A Year of Feasts at Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks

 Cheers to a year of Feasts at Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks

2014 is looking good. Our schedule is quickly filling up with traveling authors and events with our own talented local chefs as well.

We are celebrating the good things in life: food, books, friends and family and looking to Feasting Days as a marker on our calendars for meeting together to share special meals with those we care about the most. First on the calendar is March 1 - St. David's Day , and a Welsh cakes demonstration. Then March 17 - A St. Patrick's Day Supper devised from the Irish Pantry. We invite you to join us in celebrating these days, and to watch our events page for more postings.

This year we are also honouring a few of our favourite authors who are no longer with us or are unable to visit the shop, but who have provided us with a rich legacy of knowledge and recipes in what we refer to as "The Classics". We have planned some wonderful Sunday Suppers featuring the books of Judy Rodgers, Paula Wolfert, and Penelope Casas.

** We still have tickets left for the Cava Reception and Lecture at The Vancouver Club on March 8 at 2 p.m. More details can be found here .

** We are delighted to announce a book launch on May 22 for Ruth Reichl, formerly the restaurant critic for the New York Times and Editor in Chief of Gourmet Magazine. Ruth's new book, Delicious!, will be launched at The Vancouver Club with a reception, reading and Q & A. More details can be found here .
