Read, Discuss, Eat

cookbooklargeIf food is part of your book group meetings, you might want to get yourself a copy of Literary Feast: The Famous Authors Cookbook from the King County Library System Foundation. Around 90 writers (most of them from the Pacific Northwest) have contributed recipes. For a discussion of a book by Elizabeth Berg you could bake her chocolate mint brownies. Jacqueline Mitchard? Cook up a batch of TuTus, a traditional Italian cookie. Susan Vreeland offers a period French recipe for a dessert served at one of the meals in Luncheon of the Boating Party. And let’s not forget Nancy Pearl’s drop scones, good with any book. I’ve been reading Alexander McCall Smith No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, so I think I’ll try Mma Potokwani’s Fruit Cake.
