The culinary/literary event Lisa of Champaign Taste and I co-launched three months ago is back for the winter season. We would like to continue on the same path of finding culinary inspiration in literary works. Hence, we are co-hosting the second edition of Novel Food. For the occasion we are unveiling (fanfare, please) a fantastic logo, compliments of graphic wizard Keith (thank you!).
The debut edition was a lot of fun for all involved (hosts, participants and readers), which was, obviously, how we intended it to be. In case you missed it, you can read the two halves of the roundup here and here, which will also give you a sense of what this is all about. In the time of the year when gift-giving is particularly active, past and future entries for this event may be used as suggestions for presents (to be given or to be received) in the form of books or as suggestions for reading (or reading again) books that are already on our bookshelves.
Here are the simple rules for Novel Food:
- Prepare a dish of your choosing that has a connection to a literary work.
- Post it on your blog by Friday December 21, 2007, 9 am (Pacific Time).
- Send an e-mail to either Lisa (webrina AT gmail DOT com) or myself (simosite AT mac DOT com) and include your name, blog name and blog address, and a permanent link to your post.
We will do a roundup soon afterwards: it will be our special Holiday culinary/literary present.
