Reading and food… is there a more delicious combination? September’s tag for the Read It 2011 Twitter book group is #bookbites.
There’s a lot to savour this month, so start reading early!
Even before Little Red Riding Hood (and her picnic basket) was sent into the woods, it seems we have been tempted by food. The old adage ”eat to live, not live to eat” is difficult to achieve when faced with recipes from every country. ”What’s for dinner?” was enough to make my mum wilt like the proverbial salad , but my home is overflowing with recipe books, travel and recipe books, stories with recipes included, children’s books.
Are you a food history buff? Is food to keep you healthy a priority? Want to cook treats for your animals? Or do you just love to read and drop off in a soporific stupor dreaming of delicious delights? Scrummage around the Non-Fiction shelves starting in the 641s.
