Feasting Days - Celebrate Canada Day with Canada's Drink

  • Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks 1740 West 2nd Avenue Vancouver Canada (map)

Celebrate Canada Day by drinking a Canadian libation with us in preparation for next week's feasting day, our nation's birthday.

The Caesar was created by Calgary's Walter Chell for the opening of Marco's Italian Restaurant in 1969. Named after the great Roman Emperor, the aperitif was based on the rich and complex flavours of one of the restaurant's dishes, Spaghetti Vongole.

To celebrate the launch of his new book, Caesars: The Essential Guide to your Favourite Cocktail, author Clint Pattemore (who is also the Chief Mixing Officer for Mott's Clamato), will be in Vancouver today. The book has more than 50 ways to make the classic drink and 20 easy food recipes by Connie DeSousa and John Jackson, co-owners and chefs of the celebrated Charcut Roast House in Calgary. 

Join us this evening to meet the author and drink the Caesar along with some nibbles prepared from the book. 

*Copies of Caesars: The Essential Guide to your Favourite Cocktail, will be for sale at the event.

Cost: FREE, please RSVP by calling 604-688-6755.
