Voracious: A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way through Great Books

Cara Nicoletti

AN impossible to resist LITERARY banquet

Stories and recipes encouraged via the world's nice books
As a tender bookworm studying in her grandfather's butcher store, Cara Nicoletti observed how books and foodstuff deliver humans to existence. Now a butcher, cook dinner, and gifted author, she serves up tales and recipes encouraged via cherished books and the nutrients that offers their characters intensity and character.
From the breakfast sausage in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little condominium within the colossal Woods to chocolate cupcakes with peppermint buttercream from Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections, those books and the tasty treats in them placed her at the highway to happiness.
Cooking during the books that modified her lifestyles, Nicoletti stocks fifty recipes, together with:
  • The ideal soft-boiled egg in Jane Austen's Emma
  • Grilled peaches with home made ricotta in tribute to Joan Didion's "Goodbye to All That"
  • New England clam chowder encouraged via Herman Melville's Moby-Dick
  • Fava bean and chook liver mousse crostini (with a pleasant Chianti) after Thomas Harris's The Silence of the Lambs
  • Brown butter crêpes from Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl
superbly illustrated, smart, and entire of middle, Voracious will fulfill a person who loves a stupendous meal with relations and friends-or curling up with a very good novel for dessert.
