I absolutely adore this cookbook! Every single recipe made me smile. Either because I have read the book & was transported back to those scenes or because the scene described made me want to read the book which inspired the recipe.
The recipes aren't too difficult & I love that there are savory and sweet recipes.
I definitely recommend this to all the bookworms out there.
I really loved this cookbook. I love nerdy/literary recipes, and this book had a wide mix of of foods, sweet to savory, and a wide range of classic books. I also loved the pictures of each food - they were beautiful, and the instructions were all clear and easy to follow. I really loved how each food was paired with a tea or drink, and each had its own recipe as well, which was really creative and cute. The themed party ideas and baking tips were well done as well. The tips for less common ingre ...more
I was able to get an early look at this thanks to NetGalley. It's a fun cookbook with sweets and savories from many favorite childhood and/or classic books. Even though I'm not familiar with all of the books mentioned, the recipes stand on their own and many of them sound (and look) quite tempting.
For example, the "apple of life bites," which consist of apple disks, bacon, creme de brie, and pecans...yumm!! Or the sweet potato bacon pastries inspired by Little Women. Or the poetical egg salad sa ...more
I've been looking for a book just like this! My book club mates (babes!) always try to match the menu to the book when it is our turn to host. This can get a bit sketchy sometimes, but usually we can come up with a snack or full-on dinner when needed. Example: Nigerian pounded yam and fried plantains when we read AMERICANAH was a no-brainer, but a lot of books don't lend themselves well to food-interpreting (ALL THE UGLY AND WONDERFUL THINGS). It's still fun to try.

I love the concept of this cookbook. It would be perfect for an afternoon book club meeting. My favourite part was the addition of quotes from the book as too often literary recipes have little to do with the actual novel except for a clever recipe title. I also enjoyed the mix of techniques throughout the book with some recipes for beginners with pre bought doughs, while others make dough or candy from scratch being more advanced, The unique tea mixes and pairings with the recipes is a very hel ...more
This was just a fun cookbook to read. I loved going through all the recipes. If I ever wanted to have a themed tea party, this is my go to book. I think it is awesome and highly recommend it.
For literary lovers, fun foodies and creative party planners, this book is a cool must-have. The recipes are all for tea-time-appropriate snacks (savory and sweet), custom tea blends, and fun non-alcoholic drinks based on beloved books. Be Alice, having "bread and butterflies" and drinking tea with the Mad Hatter; step through the wardrobe and have a bite of Turkish Delight; or cook up a hearty afternoon snack fit for Hobbits and Dwarves alike.

Fun recipes inspired by literature, like Alice in Wonderland and Little Women. There are recipes for everything from sandwiches to tarts. There are even tea blends to make. This would be a good book of tea time recipes inspired by a book lover.
