    THE BOOK LOVERíS COOKBOOK

    Recipes Inspired by Celebrated Works of Literature
    and the Passages that Feature Them

    Shaunda Kennedy Wenger and Janet Kay Jensen
    Wake up to a perfect breakfast with Mrs. Dalbyís Buttermilk Scones, courtesy of James Herriotís All Things Bright and Beautiful and Ichabodís Slapjacks, as featured in Washington Irvingís The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Thereís homey comfort food like Connie May's Tomato Pie, created with and inspired by Connie May Fowler (Remembering Blue); Thanksgiving Spinach Casserole (Elizabeth Bergís Open House); and Amish Chicken and Dumplings (Jodi Picoult's Plain Truth) . . . Sample salads, breads, and such soul-warming soups as Nearly-a-Meal Potato Soup (Terry Kayís Shadow Song); Mr. Casaubonís Chicken Noodle Soup (George Eliotís Middlemarch); and Mrs. Leibowitzís Lentil-Vegetable Soup (Frank McCourtís Angelaís Ashes) . . . After relishing appetizers and entrees, thereís a dazzling array of desserts, including Carrot Pudding (Charles Dickensís A Christmas Carol); Effie Belleís Coconut Cake (Olive Ann Burnsís Cold Sassy Tree); and the kids will love C.S. Lewis's Turkish Delight from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
    Sprinkled throughout with marvelous anecdotes about writers and writing, The Book Loverís Cookbook is a culinary and literary delight, a browserís cornucopia of reading pleasure, and a true inspiration in the kitchen.

    • A Cookbook with a Twist

      I bought this cookbook for my daughter as a Christmas present and she reallys enjoys it. She is a very good cook and an avid reader so the book was a good match. Each recipe has at least one book quote and there is good variety---from Charlotte's Web to Postcards From the Edge to The Firm. The recipes are also catagorized nicely so it is easy to locate a "breakfast" or "salad" or "dessert". I bought one for myself and have found that some of the quotes have piqued my interest so much that I then read the entire book. You don't get THAT with every cookbook!
