    Portrait of Bonnie with cookbooks

    It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 24 years.

    SUNDAY CONCERT! The shop will be closed on Sunday, December 3 as I’ll be singing a holiday concert with the Amor Artis Chamber Choir. I’ve done this for the past 25 years or so, and it’s always a highlight of the season for me. Our conductor, Ryan Brandau, puts together a fascinating program that combines ancient chant, familiar carols (in his inimitable arrangements) and anthems, Renaissance polyphony, and some stirring instrumentals. It’s a great way to spend an hour or so on a Sunday afternoon. The concert is at 4 pm, at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral (aka “Old St. Pat’s”), on the corner of Mott and Prince Streets.

    And if you like what you hear, join us for our all-Bach concert on New Year’s Eve!

    Even though things are mostly back to normal (pandemic-wise), I continue to offer private “shopportunities!” If you’d be more comfortable being the only customer in the shop, don’t hesitate to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT outside my regular hours. You can have a half-hour or one-hour slot at your convenience and not worry about sharing space with other shoppers. Please call me or send an email and we’ll set up a time.

    GIFT CERTIFICATES can be purchased in person or ordered by phone or email.

    THANK YOU to everyone who has visited since I reopened, on June 22, 2020. To those who prefer to place email or phone orders, I can still do local deliveries by bike as well as shipping books (as always).

    My hours are posted here, and you can also check them by phone. (But NEVER rely on what’s posted on Google—it’s invariably wrong.) Remember that my hours are not the same every single week. If you can’t come in during open hours, make an appointment for a time that works for you.

    Looking forward — to everything!

    — Bonnie
