The Fishy Hour (s)

  • Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks 1740 W 2nd Ave Vancouver, BC Canada (map)

Barbara-jo and her tin fish mascot, Joe Fish invite you to celebrate the revised edition of Tin Fish Gourmet published by Arsenal Pulp Press. First published in 1998, the book was an instant hit with its elegant, quick and inventive recipes using tinned fish. Now, 16 years later, it has been completely redesigned, with colour photographs and new chapters and recipes.

At 4 p.m. Margaret Gallagher will interview Barbara-jo for CBC Radio's North by Northwest program. Then, at 5 p.m. local vocalist and jazz pianist, Jennifer Scott will play fishy tunes on our shop piano with the hope of inspiring you to sing and dance along.

Please join us for some, or all of these hours - the official launch party of the revised edition of Tin Fish Gourmet. Silvery dress is encouraged. All mermaids and mermen will receive a free tin of fish.

Cost: FREE, but please call 604-688-6755 to RSVP. Copies of Tin Fish Gourmet will be available for purchase. If you are unable to make it to this event, you may pre-purchase personalised copies of the book in the shop, by telephone, or through our webstore.
