Food for Thought

The Book Club Cookbook has been called “the definitive guide for preparing culinary masterpieces that perfectly complement the literary masterpieces your club is reading!” The book’s authors, Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp, will share recipes and tasty treats at 7 p.m. on March 28 at our George Mason Regional Library. To sign up for this free event, call 703-256-3800.

Gelman is a freelance food writer and a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals. Krupp is also an IACP member, as well as an avid cook. The two suggest delicious dishes to pair with novels enjoyed by book discussion groups. Refreshments will be prepared by staff.

The authors interviewed members in dozens of book groups across the country to gather their recipes. Their cookbook includes 100 favorite book selections and their accompanying recipes. To prepare for this event, check out some of the novels featured in this cookbook:

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd (paired with honey cake).

The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger (swordfish kabobs).

Cane River by Lalita Tademy (peach cobbler).

The Hours by Michael Cunningham (crab casserole).

Sugar by Bernice McFadden (sweet potato pie).

Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (mojitos).

Life of Pi by Yann Martel (tandoori shrimp).
