Several years ago, I started a website called The Literary Cook. I had grand ideas about what the site would look like and what kind of content I would share. Here’s a cached version of that page.
I only made it a month before I gave up. A single month! Ay yi yi.
But the idea has stuck with me over the years. My two favorite things in the world are food and books. Combining them just seems natural.
I’ve grown over the past five years, and now I’m ready to try again. Once again, I have grand visions for this project. You’ll see recipes and book recommendations, often inspired by one another! You’ll see my successes – and my failures (and don’t worry – there will be plenty of those for you and I to learn from). You’ll see a variety of recipes and books talked about here – I’m as likely to read YA (okay, more likely) as I am to read Robert Galbraith (I’ve never actually read Robert Galbraith, however).
My use of the word “literary” simply means “well-read”. There are some genres I simply don’t like (Westerns, for examples), but generally speaking – if it’s a book, I’ll give it a try. And while my palate is known for being picky, I am working hard to be more adventurous and try new things. I rarely insist I don’t like foods I haven’t tried (anymore).
2015 is going to be a great year! I’m looking forward to being inspired, and I hope that maybe you’ll be inspired with me.
