    One thought on “The Book Lover's Cookbook: Recipes Inspired by Celebrated Works of Literature, and the Passages That Feature Them”

    1. Such a clever idea! Uses recipes mentioned in novels and the passages they were taken from. Perfect for a book group event. Favorites:- Pippi Longstocking Muffin Cakes- Fried Green Tomatoes Dumplings- Like Water for Chocolate Tamales- Cold Mountain Ruby's Potato Salad- Little House on the Prairie Ma's Irish Soda Bread- Jane Eyre Privileged Tart

    2. This is a fun, clever idea for a book. I like that they included passages from all of the novels that they feature, to really put the recipe into some sort of context. I would say that the majority of these recipes aren't "quick and easy" meals, but if you're looking to put a little more effort into it I think there's some really promising recipes here. After reading through the whole thing, I know I personally have a list of about 10 recipes that I'd like to try.If there is one thing that could [...]

    3. This is a charming idea, and one I wish I'd come up with myself: take food-related quotes from a wide variety of literature (everything from Pippi Longstocking to The Great Gatsby to Ogden Nash poems) and include them with the recipes. It makes for a delightful and nostalgic read, and you almost can't bear to put it down without trying one of the recipes. I decided to attempt "Anne's Anodyne Liniment Cake (Without the Anodyne Liniment) from Anne of Green Gables, which produced a dense old-fashio [...]

    4. Any book that combines my two loves of cooking and literature is going to be a winner. I rescued this from a thrift shop this afternoon (for 80¢) and after skimming through it, I can tell it is worth 20 times that price. The research that must have gone into this book to find culinary references boggles my mind. It was sitting on a shelf waiting for me to come along and adopt it. Now to try some recipes.

    5. It could have been a big disappointment; it wasn't. The Book Lover's Cookbook is a book of recipes based on foods described in books. I was surprised at all the books that included foods in the plot. Just about all my favorite books seemed to be here. Recommended. Favorite Quote: All kinds of delicious (sorry) book quotes here, too. Here are a couple: "Reading is the work of the alert mind, is demanding, and under ideal conditions produces finally a sort of ecstasy." E.B. White "Handle them care [...]

    6. Lightning review at Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksThe Book Lover’s Cookbook: Recipes Inspired by Celebrated Works of Literature, and the Passages that Inspire Them, is a pretty basic, well-rounded “how to cook basic food” cookbook, livened up by literary quotes.This cookbook didn’t give me any new insights into how food and literature intersect, but it was well organized with good use of quotes. Some of the quotes are from fiction or non-fiction, and some are quotes by authors about food an [...]

    7. I turn to this cookbook surprisingly often. For, as pleased as I was with this book, which I received as a present, (thanks, Betsy! :) I anticipated it to be more of a novelty book that would be fun to flip through. Maybe I would make one of the recipes, but probably not.And yet, it has become a go-to book for me when I need to look for basic recipes! In fact, the compilers of the book seem to have focused their energy not so much (necessarily) on food famously mentioned in books, but on good re [...]

    8. How many times does a person read an entire cookbook from cover to cover? This year I have read 4 of them this way. This one was a very fun collection of excerpts from books, recipes for foods mentioned in books and quotes about and by authors and reading. Though some of my favorites and seemingly obvious choices of books were missing, I was introduced to new authors and stories that I’ll enjoy in the future. Can’t wait to try “Turkish Delight” from the Narnia Chronicles and “Strawberr [...]

    9. I was looking for more authentic recipes, I guess. For instance, included is a wedding punch from a book set long before the 20th century, and the recipe calls for 7-Up. If I'm going to recreate something from a book, I'd like for it to be as realistic as possible, otherwise, it's just like reading an anachronism in a historical book. It jolts you back to reality. There are some interesting recipes that I wouldn't mind trying, but I felt very few of them stayed true to the books they were connec [...]

    10. This cookbook is just plain fun with recipes inspired by literature, especially when I come across one by a book I've read. Some are obvious like Fried Green Tomatoes (Fannie Flagg) and some more of a stretch like the recipe for pork roast with cabbage that accompanies a quote from Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn where Huck complains he's hungry and Jim gets out some pork and cabbage among other things. Regardless, the quotes and imaginative pairings make me want to re-read some old favorites, giv [...]

    11. I stumbled on this book while browsing at the library, what an absolute treasure! It's fun, it's entertaining, and I will be looking for a copy to purchase so I can have and use it regularly. Filled with quotes and yummy recipes this is the perfect book for book and food loving people. I'm an average cook who loves cooking somedays and other days I do not, I found the recipes very easy and would love to try every one of them. I highly recommend this book. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

    12. This cookbook is a fun book of recipes, also including passages from novels and poems. There were passages from Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes, Elizabeth Berg's Open House, Jodi Picoult's Plain Truth, and Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking, just to name a few. I only found about 3 recipes I want to try, but I did enjoy the format and the passages. Photographs would be helpful as I like to see what a completed dish looks like in a cookbook.

    13. I am usually disappointed to find literature or television influenced cookbooks that use a majority of processed foods, but this cookbook is one of my favorites. It focuses on traditional, homemade recipes *and* convenient food recipes, depending on the setting of the book (ie: classics are more traditional than, per se, moderns). I also love how they add quotes and works of poetry throughout the entire cookbook. Well recommended, and is perfect to give to any Goodreading foodie.

    14. I paid little attention to the recipes featured her.Instead, I leafed through the pages pleasantly surprised to see some of my favorite books and authors highlighted. Elizabeth Berg merited several entries, Fried Green Tomatoes, To Kill a Mockingbird, Midwives, and The Persian Pickle Club are examples of notables that caught my eye.

    15. My favorite part of this book are the quotations throughout, they are wonderful and I want to save every one of them to remember. The short excerpts of the novels are lovely and some of the recipes seem delicious. A fun read.

    16. This is a great book. It has reviews of great books and recipes from those books or that would complement a book discussion of those titles.I did a book discussion of this cookbook at my library and we had a blast sharing books and recipes.

    17. a fun book for those of us that love books. a great way to get kids interested in reading because they can cook a recipe along with it. majority are adult novels but there are some children related ones. it's also a great resource for other books to read!

    18. Interesting idea, but the execution didn't hold my interest. It felt like someone did a search on Google for "food in literature" and then "recipes with _____ in title or ingredient" and matched them up. After reading a dozen or so of them, it gets pretty dull.

    19. I didn't try any of the recipes, but I really enjoyed the idea of basing recipes on passages from books. It was very interesting and fun to peruse.

    20. Starts with quotes from Little black Sambo and a pancake recipe and near the end a recipe for moon pies! What's not to love, and it had lots of quotes about food and recipes in between

    21. I enjoyed reading the food-related quotes in this book and the accompanying recipes. I wish the book had more pictures, however. I rarely make a recipe from a cookbook unless it has a picture.

    22. It was a decent cookbook. Alot in it my family wouldn't eat but a couple recipes we might try. Has alot of passages from books that the were the inspiration for the recipes.

    23. A great idea, to pull recipes from different books all across genres and eras, and it includes the passages where the food is mentioned in the books. Some really take you back.

    24. Good combination of recipes and quotes. to my oldest grand-daughter a true bookworm so that we can read and cook together.
