Cooking the Books

Every April, sees a new edition of the Seattle Edible Books Festival. It's a festival celebrating books and food and the people who love them.

Produced by the Seattle Center for Book Arts and supported by a grant from the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, it's choc-a-bloc with punderful cakes and other food dishes made with a sense of humor and flair for drama. It's meant to combine the creative and culinary talents of northwest bibliophiles, foodies, book artists, chefs, bakers, librarians, kids, and punsters.

The festival begins at noon and the entries are eaten at 2pm. So if you want to take a look at every entry, do be prompt.

Here are some of the luminaries of 2010...
