Have lunch in Paris at Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks in Vancouver
One of my favorite indy book stores just got better. Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks in Vancouver is hosting Parisian lunch hour salons featuring Barbara-Jo's latest book, Cooking for Me and Sometimes You: A Parisienne Romance with Recipes.
The 136-page book, with illustrations by Bernie Lyon, is a result of Barbara-Jo McIntosh spending a month in Paris. In it she shares the neighborhood where she lived and its shops, markets, bakeries, cafes, bistros and other foodie finds. And of course, there are recipes, from Cauliflower Gratin and Omelette Souffle to Steamed Halibut with Crab and Leeks and Apple Armagnac Ice Cream.
There will be two Wednesday salons from 12 noon to 1 PM at her Kitsilano shop: July 14 (Bastille Day) and July 28. The menu du jour features a light bistro lunch inspired by recipes and stories from her book. And of course, plenty of discussion about all things Parisian.
Tickets are $55 for each event and include lunch, a signed copy of Cooking for Me and Sometimes You and "a taste of la belle vie."
