A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way though Great Books

August 31, 2017

But the truth is that I fell in love with cooking through reading, and I learned quickly that being in the kitchen offered me the kind of peace that settling in with a good book did.  Cara Nicoletti

For those of us who love to read and love to cook, this is the book for you. Cara Nicoletti, author of Voracious, creates recipes for her favorite foods from some of her favorite books.  Nicoletti is a professional chef so some of her recipes were a bit daunting for me, but I loved reading the essays and the recipes that followed. I’m definitely going to try a few. For example, breakfast sausage from Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder and cherry pie from Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. My sister-in-law and dear friend, Janet, put me on to this book–she too is a reader and cook!510U2mQDcfL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_Esperanza Enrichment

In the novel, Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan, food plays an important role, literally and figuratively. I developed Enrichment Activities for Chapter Foods that are designed to increase students’ connection to the novel through food. It was fun to create and after reading Voracious, I will definitely look for other opportunities to include lessons around important food in novels.
