I am hereby announcing a new edition of Novel Food, a culinary/literary event with a long history, going back to the fall of 2007. I am a bookworm and therefore this event is close to my heart as it brings together two of my passions.
Every edition of Novel Food is a little voyage of literary discovery and also a delightful banquet made up of the literary-inspired dishes contributed by the event's participants.
I hope you will join the party. I am looking forward to learning about a published literary work (a novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio, poem, etc.) that provided you with culinary inspiration.
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) you've read.
- Publish a post about it on your blog by the end of Monday October 28, 2013 (midnight, Pacific Time), referencing the Novel Food event. Include a link to this announcement. If you wish, you can use the Novel Food logo.
- Link your post by using the linky tool at the bottom OR send an e-mail to 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 I can more easily retrieve the message in my inbox.
- Non-English submissions are fine. If possible, include an introduction in English.
If you don't have a blog, send me an email telling us about the dish, the literary work that inspired it, and, if you have it, a picture of what you made: I will add it to the roundup as well.
Note #1: If you don't receive an answer to your email within two days of sending me the email, please contact me again: sometimes email messages get lost in cyberspace.
Note #2: If you follow this link, you will be able to browse my portion of the roundup of all previous editions. In relevant posts, you will find a link to Lisa's portion of the roundup.
Note #3: I am also a co-host of Cook the Books Club. The current edition is hosted by Heather of girlichef and the next one by Rachel of The Crispy Cook. While the rules for participating in the Club (see here) are different from the rules for Novel Food, entries for the Club can be submitted also to Novel Food.
