Food as Book, Book as Food

eating my wordsMark 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 Lia Koo's Bite MeInternational 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.

Eating Your Words

Book of PiEating my words… is it possible to eat someone else’s words?
Do they have to be your own?
Would another’s words be spicy or peppery?
Sweet, lemony or flat and wooden?
Would you get heartburn?
Would you quickly get full or left wanting more?
Are you favorite words appetizers?
A main course?
Dessert?
Are you a good cook?
Whose words would you like to eat?

McPherson's Pages of Peas   How do you like your words prepared?
   Rare, half-baked or perhaps fried?
   Are your words free-range?
   Organic?
   Are your words sustainable or a mono-culture crop?
   Do you harvest your own words?
   Do you collect your words’ seeds?
   Have you watered your words yet today?
