      The Food Literature Bookclub @ Books for Cooks

      Although we are known as a cookbook shop, in truth we also stock (and read) a lot of other books about food, wine and the culinary arts including memoirs & biographies, fiction, literature, non-fiction, sociology, anthropology, food history, even food politics. This year we are convening our inaugural book clubs - focusing on food literature. Please join us for a year (10 meetings) of convivial discussion, debate, laughter, wine and food as we explore 10 important works of food literature ranging from Hemingway to Bourdain, Elizabeth David to MFK Fisher and much more. We've made it easy so all you need to do is sign up, collect and read the book and join in. We'll provide the carefully selected books, a genial (and hopefully well-read) host (and occasionally a special guest), the venue and matched food and wine as well as a tote bag and a 10% discount voucher for your other purchases during the year   FAQs When & where does the Food Literature Book Club meet? We'll meet at Books for Cooks on  the last Monday of each month from February to November (10 meetings in all) I already have one or more of the books, is there a discount?  No.  Your membership includes a copy of each of book (10 in all).  Exchange for another book is possible Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? As this is a licenced venue and alcohol will be served, attendees must be 18+ or accompanied by a parent/guardian  What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? If you have been to one of our events before, please note we have moved to the northern side of the Queen Victoria Market.  Our new address is 115-121 Victoria Street (next to A Shed) We recommend public transport. The 19, 20, 57 (Elizabeth St)and 55 (William & Peel St) trams go past the Queen Victoria Market and run frequently.  We are in the Free Tram Zone and are a short 50m walk from the Elizabeth St Queen Victoria Market stop and the Peel St Queen Victoria Market stop.  Melbourne Central and Flagstaff railway stations are two blocks away. If driving, there is plenty of metered parking on Queen St near the corner of Victoria St.  There is also limited parking on Victoria Street outside the store.  I can't go one month, can someone else go in my stead? Yes - just lend them your book and have them present your ticket on the evening.   What is the refund policy? Membership of our book clubs is not refundable Allergies  Please advise of any allergies or intolerances.
