This first cookbook created specifically for book clubs shows readers how to add a delightfully delicious angle to their book club gatherings.

Featuring recipes and food-related discussion ideas for one hundred popular book club selections, The Book Club Cookbook guides readers in selecting and preparing culinary masterpieces that tie in just right with the literary masterpieces their club is reading. From "Honey Cakes" to go along with The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd to "Eggplant Caponata" to go with Bel Canto by Ann Patchett; from "Lemony Goat Cheese Tart" with Galileo's Daughter by Dava Sobel to "Shrimp Flautas" for Empire Falls by Richard Russo; The Book Club Cookbook makes adding foods that stem from the books your club reads fun and easy.

Vicki Levy Krupp and Judy Gelman polled hundreds of book clubs all over the country to determine what their members are reading and to discover the creative ways that they're integrating food into their meetings. With recipes and colorful background information on the role that food plays in the reading choices-much of which was contributed by the authors of the book club selections themselves-The Book Club Cookbook will add some real flavor to your book club meetings.

Lovely, luscious recipes---endearing, encouraging notes about cooking and eating from book clubs across the country---a delectable photo of a Caramel Cake that was featured in an otherwise problematic book "The Help", along with a quote from the same book, "Minny said to Celia, 'Crisco is the best new kitchen appliance since jarred mayonnaise!" I appreciate the sentiment if not the comparison. I don't like mayonnaise.
