People who love books join Book Clubs….and Book Clubs are known for two things…. good book discussions and good food (let’s make that three things, I’m sure there is a glass of wine involved too). These Book Club Cookbooks will be a welcome addition to any book lover’s library.
They aren’t just any old cookbook…. these cookbooks are filled with recipes FROM books. Was that confusing? Ok… say you are discussing “The Help” … wouldn’t it be fun to serve that Caramel Cake (no, we won’t serve the chocolate pie…), what if you are readingThe Secret Life of Bees? I’ll bet a Honey Cake would be excellent.
Whether it is sweet, savory, a dessert, an appetizer or a meal… these Book Club Cookbooks will have just the right recipe to go along with the books you are discussing. They also have suggested reading lists, discussion questions, and Book Club ideas to get you started with your own book club.
Seriously, a good book, and good food? What a fabulous combination.
