Feasting Days - The Boreal Feast: A Culinary Journey Through the North

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

This year we are choosing to live in celebration of all the good things. One of the good things we can all appreciate is Feasting Days, those days of the year where we eat special things and spend time with those we care about the most.

Today we are celebrating a new book that is perfectly in line with this vision, The Boreal Feast: A Culinary Journey Through the North by Michele Genest. This is what she has to say about feasts:

“Whether elaborate or simple, a feast celebrates and strengthens our connection to each other and to the place we live—this field, forest, town, city, region, country, this earth—through good food and let us not forget, fun. The food upon which we feast is at the centre, both a celebration in itself and the medium through which we celebrate, the connector to each other and to what sustains us.”

Join us for a reception this afternoon with a talk and demonstration by Michele. Everyone will receive a copy of the book to create their own feasts at home.

Cost: $30, includes refreshments and a copy of The Boreal Feast: A Culinary Journey Through the North.
