Saveur's Top Ten Cookbook Stores

MadMom's picture

Got this month's Saveue magazine today, and found a list of their ten favorite cookbook stores, and guess what was number one?


1. Barbara-jo's Books to Cooks (Vancouver)
Barbara-jo McIntosh's quirky shop in the Fairview neighborhood of Vancouver could easily be mistaken for an art gallery.  The cookbooks, comprising a wide choice of newly published titles and older, out-of-print treasures, are beautifully arranged on well-lit wood shelves and tables.  In a welcoming kitchen at one end of the room, authors and chefs give classes on everything from how to make tiramisu to the principles of molecular gastronomy.  Jeffrey Alford


Our own Glenys Morgan is one of those authors and chefs who give classes there.

I got the issue yesterday! It really is nice to see here get the recognition she deserves. Chapters, Borders, they're just don't have the depth and bredth she has.

I was so proud of her!  I know it's been especially hard for any Canadian bookstore, with the US dollar falling below the Canadian dollar, yet books are still priced higher there.  Wonder when that will end?

What a great honor.  I only wish I could visit there in person.  Are there any stores located in Pennsylvania?


Thanks,


Mary

Barbara-Jo doesn't have any stores in Pennsylvania, but there was one which made the top ten.  It's The Cookbook Stall in Philadelphia in the Reading Terminal Market.  FWIW, other stores were in Zurich, NYC, London, Pasadena, Los Angeles, NYC (again), Paris, and Portland, ME, so I think she has ever reason to be proud to be number one!

Yes it was nice to see her get that recognition. It is my favorite bookstore. BTW, they were listed alphabetically if I recall correctly.

Cheers,

Peter

What a lovely way to make someone feel great!

The trouble today is that almost everyone is famous and almost no-one is interesting. (paraphrased Tina Brown)

I've been wondering what to post back to you.... you managed to make me speechless, wordless, powerless.... I am all warm inside, though...

I guess I'll have to save this post of yours in my heart forever, when I feel down, all I have to do is read it
