Chef Martin Picard Visits Barbara Jo’s Books to Cooks

Montreal Chef Martin Picard visits Barbara Jo’s Books to Cooks to fete his new book, Sugar Shack, on Thursday, March 29 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The traditional Quebecois cabane a sucre, or sugar shack, has been turned on its ear (and no doubt it’s a pig’s ear) by Chef Picard. Touted for his bold, decadent nose-to-tail cuisine featured at his Montreal restaurant Au Pied de Cochon, his new book, Sugar Shack celebrates the rustic traditional foods of maple sugar shacks with a nod to tradition and twists and additions that only Chef Picard can imagine.

Join the store for a sugaring off party and meet Chef Picard over Sugar Shack snacks and good cheer.

Tickets to this reception are $85 and include a signed copy of Sugar Shack.

To register, call 604-688-6755.
