A Literary Tea Party by Alison Walsh
Think about your favorite book. Now that you're thinking of that, think about the character's life. How many of your favorite character's indulge in a food that has your mouth watering? How many times have you become hungry as you read about a character enjoying a snack, meal, or beverage?
Maybe you find yourself wanting to know about the frequently mentioned Lane Cake in To Kill a Mockingbird. Perhaps you love the thought of Butterbeer from Harry Potter. If you think about food while you read, this is a book you can't skip as that's what A Literary Tea Party is all about.
In this book, you'll whip up tasty snacks that are inspired by a select number of books. For example, there's a recipe for Blood Orange Scones that are inspired by Sherlock Holmes. Serve those with some London Fog Lattes at a Sherlock Holmes book group.
Fans of Agatha Christie can hold a book reading group and serve tasty snacks like "Pocket Full of Rye" finger sandwiches and Delicious Death Chocolate Cake. Fans of Brian Jacques The Rogue Crew: A Tale of Redwall may recognize the Deeper 'n Ever Turnip 'n Tater n' Beet-root Pie. I admit, the very first recipe I tried was for the Dark Chocolate Earl Grey Lavender Truffles inspired by Sherlock Holmes. Oh, my!
Recipes in A Literary Tea Party include photos, quotes from the books, and ideas for beverage pairings. If you like to read and love to cook, this cookbook is a must!
