"Voracious is charming, poignant, and mouthwatering-a book for anyone who has craved a meal in a novel. Cara Nicoletti's writing captures the nourishment of literature and all the magical and tempting ways food and books enrich our lives."―Kate Christensen, author of Blue Plate Special and The Great Man
"Nothing is more comforting than getting to know a new friend through their stories and their food. With Cara Nicoletti's book, I'm certain I have a new friend in her."―Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker: Homemade Decadence
"Voracious satisfies two powerful appetites: for great food and for great books. We come to know Cara and her family as she digs into the lives of beloved authors-Homer, Melville, Woolf, Tartt-and discovers the best techniques for making donuts and braising lamb in wine. Her debut is a feast: warm, big-hearted, and inviting."―Nina MacLaughlin, author of Hammer Head
"As inviting as a bowl of homemade chocolate pudding. . . . Nicoletti turns both reading and cooking into eagerly anticipated visceral experiences."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A pleasure for hungry readers."―Kirkus Reviews
"It's not the type of book you'll ever want to put down.... But more than this, Voracious functions as a remarkably fresh take on coming-of-age."―National Post

I still give the book 5 stars - overall well written and it made me want to dive back into some old favorite books and add others to my "to be read" list. Preferably with a snack, of course.
I haven't tried any of the recipes yet but I'm most excited about the Chicken Liver Mousse because if anyone knows how to make that dish, it'd be a butcher!
