Top Ten Tuesday – Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

Posted October 16, 2017 by Kathy in Discussion, Top 10 Tuesday / 16 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new Top Ten list will be featured. Everyone is welcome to join! A list of 10 is just a suggestion, but you can do a list of 3 or 5 or 20. Your post, your choice! For more info stop by here. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish to visit other bloggers’ lists.  This is a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week’s topic is Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books (Does a character eat something you’d love? Or maybe the book takes place in a bakery/restaurant that makes yummy things? You could also talk about 10 of your favorite cookbooks if you don’t read foody books.)

This week’s topic feels like déjà vu. A couple weeks ago I featured my list of Books Featuring Characters That Cook. For this week’s topic I’ve changed my list a little and will share some of the yummy food.

Sanna from The Simplicity of Cider by Amy E. Reichert…Her cider had me running out to grab my first bottle of cider to try (and I loved it). I love The Saint by Crispin, do you know of any other ciders I should try?

Camille and Drew from North to You by Tif Marcelo….She owns a food truck and makes gourmet meals to die for. He cooks a traditional Filipino dish called Picadillo to impress her. I’m Filipina American and I never tried this dish before.  I found the recipe on Pinterest and it was really easy to make. It was delicious and perfect comfort food. (The picture above is of a Filipino dessert called Halo Halo).

Cath from Heartless by Marissa Meyer…Before she becomes the notorious Queen of Hearts, Cath had dreams of opening her own bakery.  She made my mouth water with her delicious baked treats, especially her French Macarons.

The Tiger Saga by Colleen Houck…Kelsey goes on a magical adventure to India to help break a tiger curse. I loved this series and while I was reading it I craved Indian food as Kelsey explored the country. One of my favorite Indian dishes is butter chicken with naan bread.

The Crêpes of Wrath by Sarah Fox…The title alone makes my tummy grumble and this cozy mystery has some delicious recipes I need to try.

What yummy foods have you read about?

  1. I love cider, especially this time of year. With some yummy donuts… and I’ve only been to a few food trucks but I love those!

      We’ll be going on our annual trip to Apple Hill so I can’t wait to get more cider and some apple treats. That’s what I love about this time of year too. Thanks Greg!

      I loved the audiobook. I try to listen to all of Marissa Meyers audiobooks if Rebecca Soler narrates it. She is an amazing narrator and creates voices for all the characters. I hope you enjoy this book!

      The tea sounds delicious! I’ll have to try some. Thanks for stopping by!
