Food, book, and, most importantly, pun lovers unite!
This year we are bringing it online! The Edible Book Festival brings people together for a lighthearted culinary, artistic, and literary celebration. Creations made from food and inspired by works of literature. (Past entries have included works titled Gourd of the Rings, War and Peas, and The Life of Pie.) Judging will be on a live stream, winners will be announced, and prizes will go in the post! Contestants are asked to include a copy of the book that inspried them in the photo. It’s the most wonderful and delicious nerd parade imaginable.
