Books for Cooks, Fitzroy, Melbourne
This is one of my favourite shops in all of Fitzroy – books, about food and cooking, as far as the eye can see.
An independent bookshop owned and run by genuine food lovers, it is a gorgeous little, floor-boarded, Victorian building, filled literally wall to wall and floor to ceiling with over 30, 000 titles. They have both new and used books covering everything from cookbooks to food writing, food history to food science, and even foreign language cookbooks.
The newer ones are a little pricey to be honest, but the real treasure trove is the old and used books – you can find some real gems there if you have the time to dig through them all! Well worth a visit, and make sure you leave plenty of time, because you’ll need it!
