This week on Feast Yr Ears, Harry welcomes Cara Nicoletti to the show talking about her book, Voracious: A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way through Great Books. As a young bookworm reading in her grandfather’s butcher shop, Cara shares how she saw 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 will satisfy anyone who loves a fantastic meal with family and friends-or curling up with a great novel for dessert. Tune in for more from Cara, including a great discussion on solo dining!
