Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks will close its doors at the end of February.

Located at 1740 West 2nd Avenue since 2005, Books to Cooks is known for selling various types of cookbooks, offering cooking classes, and hosting gourmet culinary events.

Owner Barbara-Jo McIntosh wrote in a statement that she will explore new cooking related ideas and will maintain her online presence to keep fans posted on her future endeavours.

After almost twenty years of selling books and offering classes, I have decided to close my beloved bookshop. The brick and mortar version of Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks will shut down at the end of February.

After a sabbatical to restore and refresh, I will be moving forward to explore a number of ideas related to what I have always done best, Cooking and Booking. Although the actual shop will be gone, the spirit behind it will continue to thrive in other ways. I will maintain this website as a way of keeping you posted on my future endeavours.

I am truly grateful for the continuing support of my culinary community as well as the many friends and patrons who have so warmly embraced the philosophy of the shop. Your contribution over the past two decades has helped to make Books to Cooks my true emotional home.
