I’m Vanessa Baca, and welcome to my website! If you’re a fellow bookworm and foodie, you’ve come to the right place.
Both reading and cooking are my therapies of choice. I’ve loved books from a very young age, and I discovered a love of cooking in my 30s. The expansion of my culinary adventures also opened my eyes to the descriptions of food and drink in all books, and made those imaginary literary worlds all the more fun and delicious to visit.
One day, I decided to see what was online about the food in books, and found three excellent blogs, all of which I follow to this day. Cara Nicoletti’s marvelous blog at: http://yummy-books.com, Bryt Taylor’s wonderful page at: http://foodinliterature.com, and most recently, http://thelittlelibrarycafe.com/blog/
These ladies and their love of books, as well as the food found in these books have both inspired me to expand my own horizons, in both reading and cooking.
I’ll be trying out a new recipe and book per week, so stay posted! And feel free to send me your suggestions about books and the food described in them, and I’ll try them out!
