Cook the Books....

For this installment of Weekend Cooking (sponsored by the fabulous Beth Fish Reads), A Reader's Respite has only one question.....

How is it that we don't own a copy of this cookbook?

A cookbook featuring recipes from famous food passages found in classic novels and modern favorites, it seems inconceivable that A Reader's Respite doesn't have a copy of this stashed away somewhere.  (We double checked our shelves and it's shocking, but true.)

Recipes include Ichabod's slapjacks from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the orange-poppyseed tea cakes found in The Importance of Being Earnest, macaroni and cheese from Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms, and even Sober Shepard's Pie from Bridget Jones's Diary.  How fun is that?  Perhaps not the most practical cookbook out there, but for a bibliophile it sounds like a little slice of heaven.
