In which Paper Fury sums up my reason for blogging better than I ever could :)

So there’s this book blog called Paper Fury that I follow religiously. The author (Cait) is hilarious, quirky, clever, and original…and she blogs about books, which automatically makes her awesome in my world. Anyway, she recently published a post entitled Why Books Should Always (Copiously) Mention Food, and I love it because she basically sums up my reasons for book-and-food blogging. She has this to say about the book/food relationship:

  •  It can make a book famous (i.e. The Hunger Games)
  • It makes a book gloriously realistic (Because what kind of character doesn’t eat?)
  • It can turn you into a full-blown nerd because you have to cook the food that’s mentioned in the books (Amen to that)

…and that’s just a few of her reasons! So go visit her site and read what should become the flagship post of all foodie book bloggers everywhere! And when you’re done, come back and make some of the foods she mentions in her post:

The Capitol’s Lamb Stew with Dried Plums (from The Hunger Games)

Turkish Delight (from The Chronicles of Narnia)

Butterbeer Trifle (from Harry Potter)

I’ve got grand plans to make lots of the other foods she lists too! Any guesses at which ones? 🙂

    OMG BUTTER BEER TRIFLE. I’M GONNA DIE, THAT JUST LOOKS SO SO SOOOO GOOD. ajfdaskl But seriously this post makes my day. :’) N’awwww. I so should’ve linked to your blog in my post because your pictures + recipes = my ultimate goal is to make one or nine hundred of them. I’m going to stalk the Hunger Games stew tho, because that seems so doable…

    • The Hunger Games stew has become one of my staple dinner recipes. The lamb gets SO tender, and the potatoes soak up all the flavors in the broth. If you do wind up making it, let me know how it goes! I love to get feedback on how the recipes pan out in other people’s kitchens. 🙂
