I know what you are thinking: how did this happen? Do you mean it is almost summer? I believe it happened naturally and indeed, a new season is around the corner and that marks the return of Novel Food, the culinary/literary event that Lisa of Champaign Taste and I co-launched a few seasons ago. As in previous editions of the event, we are looking to find culinary inspiration in literary works. Hence, we are co-hosting the fourth edition of Novel Food, which makes it an event for all seasons.
In case you missed the previous editions of the event and you are wondering what it is about, the split roundup of the previous version (my portion is here and Lisa's portion is here) should give you a sense of what this is all about.
I will make this announcement short and just lay out the simple rules for participating in Novel Food #4:
- Prepare a dish of your choosing that has a connection to a published literary work (novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio).
- Post it on your blog by Saturday June 21, 2008, 9 am (Pacific Time).
- Send an e-mail to Lisa (webrina AT gmail DOT com) or to me (simosite AT mac DOT com) and include your name, blog name and blog address, and a permanent link to your post. Please, include the words "Novel Food" in the email subject, so we can more easily retrieve the message in our inbox.
Non-English submissions are fine. If possible, include an introduction in English.
Lisa and I will do a roundup soon afterward the deadline: it will be our special way of welcoming the new season.
