Frequently bought together

"Nicoletti serves up a mouth-watering scramble of memoir, criticism, and book-inspired recipes."―O Magazine
"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
"Voracious is a delicious culinary journey through Cara Nicoletti's love affair with reading; from the grilled peaches inspired by Joan Didion's 'Goodbye to All That' to The Silence of the Lambs and the chicken liver mousse that followed, this is a delightful, fun, mouthwatering intersection of the things I love most in life: books and food."―Elissa Altman, author of Poor Man's Feast
"This book is wonderful. It will fill your soul and your stomach."―Jeff Garlin, comedian and author of My Footprint
"As inviting as a bowl of homemade chocolate pudding. . . . Nicoletti turns both reading and cooking into eagerly anticipated visceral experiences."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Like a wonderful appetizer, Nicoletti's entries are easy to digest and full of pleasing surprises."―Bookpage
"A pleasure for hungry readers."―Kirkus
"Her recipes... are enticing. And many of the individual essays, like one on a character in Mrs. Dalloway whose repression is expressed through her avaricious relationship with a chocolate éclair, are charming."―Lisa Abend, The New York Times Book Review

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!
