Hungry, Anyone?

Books that inspire cooking, baking, eating, and more than meets the eye.

Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably.
— CS Lewis

We talk a lot about how books can entertain, but did you know that books can do a lot more?  Books have the magical power to get into our minds, remind us that we’re hungry or spark the hunger that wasn’t there until the words on the page ignited it. And with the holidays upon us, food is usually at the center of our celebrations. Today, we’re going to celebrate food with books that spark the spirit of Christmas even beyond its intention.

Covers that make you hungry

First impressions get us in the door (or beyond the cover)!

Inspires Action

Books with characters that make eating fun, especially with others.

There’s more to baking.

Sometimes there’s more to take away when a little baking is involved!

Food as gifts.

It’s hard to tell who the gift was for, the giver or the gifted.

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate!

Not a fan of chocolate? How about sugary sweets?

I’d like to enter a confectionary shop like this one!

 

Are you hungry for food, words, or maybe a little of both?  Either way, as CS Lewis said, “Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably.” Enjoy.
