logo - Edible Book FestivalREADERS: START YOUR OVENS!

Part literary, part culinary, and part artistic, the Edible Book Festival is sure to tickle your taste buds, and your funny bone! This edible art exhibition will feature “books,” made of food and inspired by a book or pun on a book title, that are exhibited, documented, and then consumed. The event is free and open to the public, so come out and enjoy these mouthwatering manuscripts, or brave your aprons to create your own succulent storybook.  Located in the commons at the Lake Forest Park Town Center.

Register your culinary creation here!

Create an “Edible Book” inspired by a book, but made out of edible ingredients.  Entries can be savory or sweet, just make sure they tickle the taste buds (and maybe the funny bone!)

The Edible Books are displayed (along with the book that inspired them), photographed, judged, and then EATEN (with coffee & punch) by the participants and on-lookers. Prizes are donated by Third Place Books and the Arts Council’s very own Gallery at Town Center.
