The Little Library Cookbook: 100 Recipes from Your Favorite Books
This beautiful cookbook brings literary feasts to life with recipes from classic and modern literature, like vanilla layer cake from Anne of Green Gables, buckwheats from Little Women, or a thousand pork & ginger dumplings from The Kitchen God's Wife. Regardless of whether you cook any of the recipes, this book belongs on any bookworm's coffee table or shelf. If you do pick a few recipes to try in the kitchen, fear not: even the Dickensian recipes are tailored to modern life. I'm thinking of several friends who would love to receive this collection for the holidays.
