Celebrating a classic chef's natal day.

  • Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks 1740 West 2nd Avenue Vancouver, BC, V6J 1H6 Canada

Tonight we celebrate Michel Roux, on the day he turns 75. We are grateful to have Michel as a friend. Michel has visited the shop on many occasions, always offering support. Michel still continues to move around the world with spirit and joy for his very well honed craft.

I have asked a local young chef, Max Straczek, who met with Michel when he last visited, to prepare a five course menu from a selection of Michel's books.    

Please join us to wish Michel a bon anniversaire, while we dine in style. I will read passages from Michel Roux's memoir: "Life is a Menu". 

We ask that you wear black and white, in honour of the classic attire of the French restaurateur. We imagine Michel will enjoy his natal day with his family, in his chef jacket.

Cost of this evening is $135.00 per person and will include a $30 voucher for any purchase you may desire in shop. Seating is limited to 14.

This will be the first of our classic book dinner gatherings.
