New library: L'Occasion Gourmande
The folks at Librarie Gourmande opened a new library on nearby De Castelnau. This one, L'Occasion Gourmande, specializes in used cookbooks. They have French and English. They are also building a collection of Quebec books for conservation.
Located at 366 De Castelnau, between Drolet and St-Denis. 3 minutes from Jean-Talon market. Not sure about the business hours, 514-759-9143
Everybody should dig their most precious treasures and sell them at l'Occasion Gourmande so I can spend my next pay check there.
I've also had luck finding cookbooks at Renaissance Montréal, a charity shop very close to there - St-Laurent + Castelnau. One treasure from there the original edition of "A Book of Middle Eastern Food" by Claudia Roden.
I have a cookbook from Expo 67, or is it the 76 Olympics? In either case I'll give it to them, as I never use it and it is interesting for food historians to see how such events gave an impetus to trying new foods. Funny what was "exotic" 30 or 40 years ago...
