About Us

We devour books. We study food. We read a lot; we eat a lot. Enjoy some of our thoughts, recipes, and random musings inspired by our favorite books and meals.  

  We are current professors of literature and writing at a university in Savannah, Georgia, former high school English teachers, book club founders, and obsessive bibliophiles.

    I have to commend you both on an awesome blog. I found you while hunting for the lamb stew recipe from The Hunger Games, and was thrilled at the concept of the entire site. I love to read…and appreciate excellent meals as well! How funny that every time I do read a book that pays particular attention to the food (like The Hunger Games!), I always said “I wonder if there’s a recipe for that!” You two have solved that problem *grins* Keep it up!

  2. Thanks! Let us know if you have any requests.
