The King County Library Foundation has recently (well, March) published Literary Feast: The Famous Authors Cookbook. Along with almost 100 recipes ranging from drinks to desserts, the cookbook offers author profiles and stories to accompany their recipes.
Authors as diverse as Nancy Pearl, Stephanie Kallos, Phil Hellmuth, Rick Steves, and Dale Chihuly offer their favorite food ideas! Many of the featured authors also have Pacific Northwest connections.
The top three recipes I can't wait to try (in no order):
- Sweet Potato Cheesecake (Eileen Goudge)
- Cowboy Cookies (Rick Steves)
- Boccone Dulce (William Dietrich)
Proceeds from the cookbook benefit lifelong learning and literacy programs offered by the Foundation in libraries and communities. For more information, please visit the King County Library Foundation's website.
I found my copy buried in the books at the Kirkland Costco (and I also purchased another as a perfect "Thank You" gift for a fellow avid reader and kitchen adventurer). The book is also available online at ThriftBooks.com.
