Special Edition: Announcing Novel Food #10
I am donning my herald's garb today to call all readers with a passion for cooking and cooks with a love of literature: I am spreading the good news that the equinox has brought a new edition of Novel Food, the culinary/literary event that Lisa of Champaign Taste and I co-launched a few seasons ago. (Are we really at number 10 already? Indeed, we are!)
As in the previous editions, we are interested in published literary works (a novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio, poem) that provided you with culinary inspiration.
If you are new to the event, and you are wondering what it is about, follow this link to view my portion of the roundup of all previous editions. In each post, you will find a link to Lisa's portion of the roundup.
This is a fun event: you read, you cook, you write and at the end you also get a nice reading list, which can be easily turned into a plan for enriching your library.
Here are the simple rules for participating in Novel Food:
- Prepare a dish of your choosing that has a connection to a published literary work (novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio, poem).
- Publish a post about it on your blog by the end of Saturday April 17, 2010 (midnight, Pacific Time), referencing the Novel Food event. Include a link to this or to Lisa's announcement. If you wish, you can use the Novel Food logo.
- Send an e-mail to Lisa (champaigntaste 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.
If you don't have a blog, send us an email telling us about the recipe, the literary work that inspired it, and, if you have it, a picture of what you made: we will add it to the roundup as well.
Note: If you don't receive an answer to your email or a comment on your post within two days of sending me or Lisa the email, please contact us again: sometimes email messages get lost in cyberspace.
Lisa and I will do a roundup soon after the deadline.
Parting photo: it's trillium time in Northern California. We encountered the one portrayed below while walking among the redwoods. The name of the flower refers to its having three of everything: petals, sepals and "leaves," which are actually bracts.
