Visiting a bookstore is one of my favourite activities in Vancouver. Today, I had the luxury to visit Barbara-Jo’s Books to cooks  located on 1740 West 2nd Avenue. This beautiful bookstore has been around since 1997 and it is the perfect store for food and book lovers. It was filled with inspiration and you can see Barbara-jo’s passion for food and hospitality industry. 在温哥华,光顾书店是我最喜欢的消遣方式之一。今天我就有幸来到位于西第二大道1740号的Barbara-Jo厨艺书店。这家书店自1997年开门营业以来,一直是好书和美食爱好者的眷恋之地。店里充满着书卷扉页的灵动气息,您能在此体会到Barbara-jo对餐饮业的不变热爱。 Book store 04 Every time I visit the store, the staff are very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. They help you find exactly what you are looking for. When I’m in the store, I always leave with much satisfaction and gain much information about food. 每次来到这里,迎接我的店员都非常友善,他们懂的很多,总能给我需要的帮助。他们能帮您找到您一直以来寻寻觅觅的书籍。离开的时候,我总能满意而归,带回有关美食的丰富信息。 Book store 08 Book store 02 Book store 05 As they are very passionate about hospitality industry, the store is also set up so you feel welcomed. They even have an old piano middle of the room. To be in the store, surrounded by books while listening to piano; that is a picture of heaven. 基于对餐饮业的满腔热情,Barbara-Jo书店由此创办起来,所以您总能在此感到宾至如归。店中央甚至还摆放着一家古董钢琴,置身于书海之间,聆听着琴声悠扬,简直是天堂的画面。 Book store 03 The thing that pulled me to Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks was their slogan, “Read-Cook-Eat”! In the store, they have a cooking island set up with many professional kitchen utilities as well as a wait staff. 8 years ago, I organized a Read-Cook-Eat party here. 吸引我来Barbara-Jo厨艺书店的正是他们的广告词“读-厨-食”! 店内还辟出了一块烹饪区,设有专业的厨房用具和服务人员。8年前,我就在这里举办了一场以此为主题的派对。 Book store 06 Book store 07 It inspired all of my guests and was a fantastic event.
