Mark your calenders and save the date. My favorite holiday, April 1st, has a growing collection of food celebrations attached to it. Not only is there the world famous Eugene Jello Art Show, April Fool’s Day marks the celebration of the International Edible Book Festival. In part to commemorate the April 1st birthday of French gastronome Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), the Edible Book Festival is a celebration of edible art that has something to do with books as shapes and/or content. Books 2 Eat hosts an index of participating chapters across the world.
