This week, we’re continuing to explore one of Cori’s favorite genres of foodie fiction! So, let’s talk about the tea we’re drinking and the food we’re eating to go along with another food themed read.
What We’re Eating and Drinking
Kyrie is finishing up a month of Whole30 (crazy gal), so she made some super delish bacon-wrapped dates. This is an easy recipe to find on the interwebs. Kyrie does have one smart trick with this classic snack: you only use half a date and half a piece of bacon. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty!!
To go along with this scrumptious snack, Kyrie and Cori drank Sweet Chestnut Chai from our pals at Plum Deluxe. It’s a delicious tea that has essence of chestnut, vanilla, and love! As Plum Deluxe Ambassadors, you can use our code BOOKSANDTEA and our link to get 10% off your first order
What We’re Reading
With an accidental midwestern focus, next week we take on another foodie book mainly set in Wisconsin with Cori’s pick of Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J Ryan Stradal. This book has a unique format in that each chapter is almost a mini short story. At its heart, the central character is a young woman named Eva who becomes an acclaimed chef due to her extraordinary palate. However, Eva is sometimes a secondary character who orbits in the world of each story’s main character. The other main character is the food traditions of the midwest. It makes for a strange and intriguing narrative.
Coming up Next Time
Next month’s genre is a favorite of both Kyrie and Cori: Historical Fiction. First up is Kyrie’s pick, The Tattooist of Auschwitz.
