A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way through Great Books 

From the breakfast sausage in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House in the Big Woods to chocolate cupcakes with peppermint buttercream from Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections, these books and the tasty treats in them put her on the road to happiness

There is no better combo than books and food- maybe we need to add travel as well to make it supreme.

This book is all about books and food. Out student librarians did a "Master-chef"  based on this idea. We had Winnie the Pooh, we did lord of the Rings, Percy Jackson and Alice in Wonderland. The students loved it and they made stunning dishes. 

This book has a similar idea- it looks at three levels - childhood books, teenage books and adults books. In the childrens section we have Pippi Long stockings Buttermilk Pancakes and Charlotte's Web- pea and Bacon Soup- oh no poor Wilbur!!!.

In the Teenage section we have To Kill A Mockingbird - Molasses Butter and in the adults section we have Gone Girls -brown butter Crepes!

Theer are over fifty recipes and each one is attached to a book and has a great description come essay as to why the recipe matches the story. The problem for me now is I cannot stop thinking about what foods are attached to all my favorite books!

AN IRRESISTIBLE LITERARY FEAST Stories and recipes inspired by the world's great books  Beautifully illustrated, clever, and full of heart, Voracious will satisfy anyone who loves a fantastic meal with family and friends-or curling up with a great novel for dessert.
