    I was able to get an early look at this thanks to NetGalley. It's a fun cookbook with sweets and savories from many favorite childhood and/or classic books. Even though I'm not familiar with all of the books mentioned, the recipes stand on their own and many of them sound (and look) qu...

    The tea party scene in Alice in Wonderland is one of the most inspiring literary descriptions of a food-related habit. The cuppa shared around the table is part of a cultural taste habit which where aromatic infusions are a pretext for conversations and sharing. The literary world ...

    Full review on theflashlightreader.com A few months ago, my mom and I went to a traditional English Tea at a local Bed and Breakfast. Neither of us had attended a tea before, but we decided it would be a great way to kick off the holiday season and do something different. Sometimes ...

    I love the concept of this cookbook. It would be perfect for an afternoon book club meeting. My favourite part was the addition of quotes from the book as too often literary recipes have little to do with the actual novel except for a clever recipe title. I also enjoyed the mix of tech...

    This is a cute book, the type of thing that would make a nice gift book for a reader. Maybe give the book with a copy of one of the classic books mentioned and the ingredients to make one of the associated recipes! I made the London Fog Latte inspired by Sherlock Holmes and really e...

    This was a lovely book! The concept and execution are flawless. The premise is that the recipes remind you of literary favorites and it has achieved success in doing so. The guide for a book themed tea party is so fun and well done. I also really enjoyed the "make your own tea" section...

    I requested this book from NetGalley because it contains two things I love: books and cooking/baking. The ARC copy also has a really pretty illustration for the cover page, much more so than the final book cover in my opinion. (Re)Creating recipes from fictions is not a new idea. I...

    I've been looking for a book just like this! My book club mates (babes!) always try to match the menu to the book when it is our turn to host. This can get a bit sketchy sometimes, but usually we can come up with a snack or full-on dinner when needed. Example: Nigerian pounded yam and ...
