Food from books
Because I don't already waste enough time, I started a new board on Pinterest recently for food from books. I don't know why, but I get a little thrill when I make a recipe from a book I love. Even eating something as simple as bread and milk and blackberries is so much more exciting when you know that Peter Rabbit ate that, too.
Is there a food description in a book you've read that you've always wanted to try? I can think of several, but probably my top two are Susan Baker's monkey-face cookies from Anne of Ingleside and Anne Shirley's pink-frosted nut cake from Anne of Avonlea.
Here's hoping I'll get to try them soon.
