The Book Club Cook Blog is devoted to two of the things I enjoy most in the world: books, and cooking for my friends. My book club has been meeting for over ten years, and our gatherings revolve just as much around eating and drinking as they do around discussing books. We try to prepare meals inspired by the featured books as a fun way to immerse ourselves deeper in the experience of the book and to transport ourselves into the time and place of the story.
This blog contains menus that replicate as closely as possible the meals described in some of my favorite books (including classic novels as well as contemporary book club selections). I have used the most authentic, yet feasible, recipes I could find, in the hope that it will enhance your book club gatherings as well as provide inspiration for everyone who enjoys combining their literary and culinary passions.
