Cookin’ The Books

Have you ever read a book and wondered what your favorite characters are eating?

This is a question I ask myself every time I read a new book or one of my favorites.  What was the author thinking when writing the book?  Were they hungry?  Is it something they had when they were kids?  What does it look like?  Smell like?  Taste like?

In this series I intend to explore how far my imagination will take me.  I don’t know if I’ll nail exactly what the author had in mind while writing their story but I’ll definitely satisfy my own curiosity.

By exploring the authors background and history I hope to detail what the motivation was and how the food in the book adds to the story.  Is it regional? Is it cultural? And most importantly….does it taste good?

*Now if any of you has any “novel” ideas for me to try please write to me with any ideas you might have and I’d love to add them to my library.
