Two of my favorite things: Books and Food. And while I often find myself so engrossed in a novel that I forget to eat, treats can actually enhance the experience. Just be sure not to turn the pages with sticky fingers!
The Book and Food Pairings of Your Dreams
1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and cookies!
The Covey girls love to bake together, especially for their Christmas Cookie Bonanza. Try your hand at one of the recipes included in the back of the book and prepare yourself for alllllll of the heart feels! And then make another batch and watch the movie adaptation on Netflix J
2. Starry Eyes and s’mores!
There is one camping food that tops them all and that, my friends, is s’mores. It’s the perfect balance of melty chocolate, ooey gooey marshmallow, and crunchy graham cracker! Make yourself one of these and settle in for a night under the stars with Zorie and Lenon.
3. City of Bones and Chinese food!
The New York werewolf den is glamoured to look like The Jade Wolf Restaurant. They even have a working phone line! Grab a combination platter from your favorite Chinese place and settle in for a wild ride!
4. The Last Magician and a freshly made baguette!
Many of the Devil’s Own wind up in Tilly’s kitchen by day’s end to soothe their ailments. There’s nothing quite like the scent of freshly baked bread or that crazy delicious warmth of your first bite to transport you back in time!
5. Stay Sweet and ice cream!
Okay, I know, obvious choice but I mean, can you really complain about enjoying some delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough while devouring this wonderfully sweet book?
6. The Education of Margot Sanchez and arroz con gandules (rice and beans)!
A staple of the Bronx neighborhood where Margot lives, you’ll be channeling some seriously authentic vibes and feel like you’re actually in the book with her.
7. The Wicked Deep and a lobster roll!
Did someone say harbor town? If there’s one thing that pairs perfectly with salty, rain-soaked streets it’s a buttery soft lobster roll.
