This month, Andrea at Adventures in All Things Food hosts our Book Club Cook Book Cooking Crew project.
The book is A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. Reading the book is optional, as the cookbook provides a recipe, but if you’d like to deviate from the cookbook and create something that is inspired by the book instead, I’d recommend reading it.
Personally, I’m torn. I do want to make the Lemon Meringue Pie, but….. the book ends in Maine, in August and that’s blueberry season. I did bake a Maine Blueberry Pie last year, so it may be time for something different. Red hot dogs with Moxie soda, perhaps? Both traditional Maine foods – Moxie is the state soda, did you know? – in addition to the beloved lobster.
