Cara Nicoletti presents Voracious: A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way Through Great Books
Reading and recipe samples
Cara Nicoletti is a butcher and baker whose popular blog Yummy Books celebrates her love affair with reading, cooking, and eating. In her new book Voracious, Nicoletti cooks her way through the books that helped her get through tough adolescent years and find purpose and satisfaction as an adult. From the breakfast sausage in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House in the Big Woods, to chocolate eclairs from Mrs. Dalloway, to cupcakes from Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections, these book-inspired recipes evoke nostalgia, inspiration, and the hunger for life created by great writing. Nicoletti presents some tasty bookish treats along with her reading and discussion.
