In Mid- June 2015, Books for Cooks, Australia’s leading culinary bookstore is moving to Queen Victoria Market.
Recently recognised by CNN as one of the world’s ‘coolest’ bookstores, Books for Cooks is an independently owned, award winning, specialist bookstore selling exclusively new, vintage and antiquarian cookbooks and books about wine and food.
Queen Victoria Market is one of Melbourne’s great destinations, a culinary and heritage icon and the centre of a new and exciting renewal precinct in the City of Melbourne – a UNESCO City of Literature.
Long term resident of the ‘famous’ Gertrude St, Fitzroy, and also Melbourne culinary icon, Books for Cooks will continue to trade at 233 Gertrude St, Fitzroy until late June 2015.
With more cookbooks than they can possibly fit into their Fitzroy home and limited space for their unique and intimate culinary and cookbook author events Books for Cooks have been looking for a new home for some time.
The renewal of the Queen Victoria Market precinct provides a wonderful opportunity for Books for Cooks and Queen Victoria Market to partner together to bring a richer ‘foodie’ experience to market visitors
Books for Cooks’ new and larger home at Queen Victoria Market will open in mid-June at 129-131 Therry St (opposite H Shed).
“We are extremely excited to be moving to the City of Melbourne and to be joining the extended Queen Victoria Market community of food lovers, cooks and traders. We’ve been customers and users of the Market for over 30 years and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership” Tim White, Owner Books for Cooks
‘We are thrilled that Books for Cooks will be calling the Market home. This is an exquisite example of the type of new experience that Queen Victoria Market will be bringing to its customers – in this case a perfect mixture of food, literature and art in a bustling market environment where you can linger quietly for hours or buy the best cookbooks and ingredients in one quick shopping trip’ Jan Cochrane-Harry, CEO Queen Victoria Market
