This evening, we welcome Barbara Miachika to the shop to talk about her new memoir with recipes, The Accidental Baker: A Cake for Every Crisis.
In this book, Barbara tells the story of how an unfortunate series of events drastically changed her life. In order to support herself, Barbara, a self-taught chef, opened "Cuisine de Barbara", a private cooking school based in her West Vancouver home. The Accidental Baker is the story of resourcefulness in the face of adversity and of how food was not only a comfort to Barbara, but also a path to her success.
Barbara now lives in Florida and will be in Vancouver to visit friends and promote her new book.
Cost: $45, includes reading, Q&A, demonstration, and a personalised copy of The Accidental Baker: A Cake for Every Crisis.
