A Bloggable Feast


Jeanie Riess samples literary food blogs:

If food is the way to a man’s heart, then descriptions of foods might be the way to a reader’s eyes. And cooking those descriptions brings them right to the table. "Food often allows you to step into the story just a little bit more than you otherwise could," says [Nicole Villenueve, creator of the popular Paper and Salt blog]. "You may not have been to Paris, but with Hemingway you can down a few oysters and live vicariously through him."

The blogs Eat This Poem and Yummy Books are also worth checking out.
