What's Cooking at Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks this Summer


 A Summer of Feasting and Reading

Summer is for traveling (to both near and far places), eating together, relaxing, and celebrating long weekends with friends and families. With that in mind, we have planned a few events in June and July for your enjoyment of this glorious season.

In June we will begin with an evening featuring Provence Food and Wine, followed by a Sunday Supper honouring Clarissa Dickson Wright, and a book and anniversary celebration for Don Genova (who was married in our Yaletown shop). We will end the month with a pre-Canada Day celebration featuring a new book all about Canada's drink: Caesars. Then in July we will host a reading & signing by former Vancouverite, Barbara Miachika and a very relevant evening about Seaweed led by Prannie Rhatigan of Ireland.

Stay tuned for our Autumn Event Schedule; we will be posting these events online at the end of June and are looking forward to many exciting authors visiting the shop!


Registration is now open for our Book Club,

Eating Between the Leaves


This club meets four times a season to share lively conversation around a different book while enjoying a meal inspired by its pages. More information, including dates and the titles of the books we will be reading, may be found here.
