Welcome to Bookcooker! Just a brief note to explain where I am coming from and what to expect from the blog. Bookcooker is a blog that combines my love of reading and my love of cooking. I have wanted to start a cooking blog for a while now, but was having a hard time deciding where to start. I am an avid reader, and realized the other day that after I finish a book I just add it to the many piles of books scattered throughout my apartment, move on to the next book, and often forget what I liked about the books I have read. This realization is what inspired me to get off my butt and start the blog. My plan for the blog is to provide a brief review of a book I have recently read as well as a recipe inspired by the book. In some cases this might be some sort of food or dish described in the book and in others it will just be something inspired by the themes or location of the book. I am an amateur cook and baker and will be posting recipes that will not have been exhaustively tested. In addition, be forewarned, I don’t know anything about blogging and so will be learning on format and layout as I go.
A word about what kinds of books I read. I pretty consistently stick to contemporary fiction, and only read paperbacks so will not be reviewing any books close to the release date. My taste in fiction is pretty varied, sometimes it will be higher brow like Phillip Roth but I also proudly partake in chick lit. Recommendations welcome.
