Have you heard about the edible book festivals? This year represents the 13th year of celebrating books by eating them! A history of how the festival started is here. A list of countries where edible books are celebrated is here.
I’ve attended the one in New York. It was truly an eating sensation. The Center for Book Arts partnered with a culinary school. Bookbinders and pastry student chefs designed different books.We, the attendees, eagerly savoured every bite. Not all edible books were desserts. Some were savoury dishes, too.
The closest edible book festival to Vancouver is in Seattle by the Seattle Center for Book Arts. The festival takes place on Saturday, March 31, 2012, 12-3pm.
