Summer Reading for a Foodie



I found a book that I have to share with you.  Let me give you a little peek and hopefully you’ll be inspired to search it out.

What if you were given a gift certificate to a cooking class?  What if you didn’t really want to go but decided to attend out of obligation? 

What if you were a very lonely person and discovered a cooking class.  What if you decided to go just to be with people? 

What if you were planning your wedding?  You completed all your premarital classes.  You made all your decisions together and were respectful of each other’s feelings.  What if a chef gave you the task of baking, building and decorating your own wedding cake?  What would be revealed in your relationship?  

To explore these “what ifs” further you must pick up a copy of Erica Bauermeister’s debut novel, The School of Essential Ingredients.  In her novel,eight people attend a cooking school, even though most have no real interest in learning how to cook.  Erica explores the relationship between food and emotions within the cooking equation. 

It’s a great read if you are a foodie.  Pick it up for your summer reading but don’t be surprised if you find yourself inspired to do a bit of cooking!
