Fae Friday

Fae Friday – Food

Fae Friday is an awesome new weekly post created by Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. I’m super excited to participate in this (and to have been an avid supporter of it from the beginning)! A topic is provided each week, and Kristy is so welcoming to ideas from others. If you have any ideas for topics, reach out to her through her blog or on Twitter (@caffeinatedfae).

Here’s the rules:

  • Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
  • If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
  • Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
  • Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!

This week was created by the brilliant Nery from Postcards from La-La Land! (Check out her blog if you haven’t already, because it’s AWESOME!) Faeries are known for their love of food, so we’re wondering what books have such fantastic food descriptions that you’re hungry after reading them?

This prompt immediately brought two books to mind:

Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco involved a main character who worked at her family’s restaurant in Sicily, and the descriptions of the food they prepared just sounded so delicious that it sparked an intense craving for Italian food. I actually wound up ordering Italian food for dinner that night! The story was a damn good one too.

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo is such a great story, and it includes some actual recipes that sounded so good I almost wanted to stop reading and start cooking. Throughout the book, the main character uses cooking and baking as a coping skill and a way of self-expression as she navigates life’s challenges.

What are some books that have fantastic food descriptions that make you hungry?

  1. Thank you for the shout-out! 😃😃😃 Ever since I read Like Water, by Rebecca Podos, I’ve been craving things like pork braised in juices and spices, cooked in banana leaves, and spare ribs covered in Mexican chocolate sauce and Kahlua, with a dash of “unidentified magic.”
