A Bookish Menu: When Food and Reading Meet

12 Mar

stackWe know we share a common love, the written word. We love fiction and non-fiction, fantasy to chick-lit and everything in between. But what about vittles? Think about those weekend days, sitting with warm food and a good book? Or retreating to a coffee shop, book in one hand and coffee in the other. Food, savory or sweet? Is there a type of food that embodies the bookish experience? Tea and biscuits for a Victorian tale? Red wine and a warm bowl of past while reading a steamy novel? Or perhaps a beer and wings over a rip roaring adventure tale?

If you are going to pair food and beverage with a book, what would your menu be?

    A glass of red wine or hot earl grey tea (depending on the time of day) and chocolates or chocolate cookies! Warm comfort foods for books that you can really sink your teeth into :)

    Tea is a must, no matter what book (unless it’s some steamy drama, in which case wine can be just as nice). I prefer nibbling on something while reading, rather than eat a full meal — like frozen grapes, cookies, chocolate or frozen yogurt.

    How about hot chocolate with whipped cream with a walnut brownie on the side for cozying up with a good YA novel?
