The third annual Sprouts Awards will celebrate winner Jennifer McLagan's book Fat on Wednesday, March 11th at 6:30 pm at Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks. Jennifer will join guests for a reception catered by Fuel restaurant where she will share in her experiences as a cookbook author, bubbly in hand.

Fat has been one of the most controversial books to grace our shelves this past year. With refreshing philosophies on why fat is a necessary element to a healthy diet, Fat succeeds at dousing our fear of the misunderstood ingredient with unique recipes and tantalizing photographs.

Join Jennifer on March 11th when she receives the coveted sterling silver Brussels sprout in honour of her deserving book. Local artist Robert Chaplin hand-crafted the sprout which has become a symbol of the annual Sprouts Awards. We are pleased to announce that ticket proceeds will be donated to the Vancouver East Cultural Centre to help in the Cultch's quest to preserve and encourage our cultural community. Cost: $75.00. To register, please call 604-688-6755.
