One of my favourite cookbooks.

I really enjoy the unique recipes in this book! I love to read and this book is so cool because the food from some of my favourite books is in here.

Books and Cooking...Need We Say More

This book is great for someone who is familiar with the classics and older books. I absolutely love it when cookbooks are made from books or tv shows, so this was a win for me!

great gift for the reader who loves to cook

I purchased this book for a friend who's favorite book is Tara Road. I was surprised to see an excerpt from the book in this recipe book so I had to order it. She received it for her birthday and is already anxious to get cooking on some of the recipes. I guess that means it was a good pick!

Outstanding Experience

I was incredibly impressed with this product and the service! I will use this vendor again and highly recommend them.

The Book Lover's Cookbook

Every page of this delightful book is interesting. Snippets of old favorites, new novels, children's stories, and classics are included, along with wonderful recipes from those passages---some of them from the authors themselves. Wonderful quotes about literature are interspersed along with delightful recipes for us foodies who also happen to love books. A perfect combination!

A good read, and good food, too!

Who would have thought that actually reading a cookbook could be so much fun? My personal preference leans toward cookbooks that offer more than a collection of recipes and this book delights both readers of the classics and contemporary literature, as well as the enthusiastic cookbook collector. I had the good fortune of meeting authors Shaunda Kennedy Wenger and Janet Kay Jensen in a live chat. I was taken by their lively sense of humor and the fun they expressed they had in assembling the recipes to match the excerpts and quotations used throughout the book.You'll find plenty of comfort food to enjoy while you read some great stories, or revisit old favorites.

Natural "comfort-food"

Good books and good food are unadulterated comfort for many of us. The painstakingly-researched, kitchen-tested recipes drawn from the contents of books loved by so many readers, coupled with the beautiful phsyical presentation of this cookbook make it a must-have for all who appreciate good books, good food, or both! I've already shared the news of this publication with friends and received enthusiastic responses, many of which make reference to their gift lists for upcoming holidays.
