Meet, Cara Nicoletti, a Brooklyn butcher whose love of great books and great food inspired her popular blog Yummybooks. Her new cookbook Voracious: A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way Through Great Books features stories and recipes from classic to contemporary works and just might change the way readers eat and eaters read.
As a young bookworm reading in her grandfather's butcher shop, Cara Nicoletti saw how books and food bring people to life. Now a butcher, cook, and talented writer, she serves up stories and recipes inspired by beloved books and the food that gives their characters depth and personality. From the breakfast sausage in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House in the Big Woods to chocolate cupcakes with peppermint buttercream from Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections, these books and the tasty treats in them put her on the road to happiness.
