Edible book ideas?

alixschwartz | Jun 7, 2007 09:29 PM

We're having a potluck at my work next week, and we're supposed to bring "edible books." These can be items (like cakes) made to look like a book (examples are a "dictionary cake" in which the definition for "cake" appears in the icing and a "My Year of Meats" in which the pages are cold cuts) or they can be puns on book titles. One co-worker brought in an example last week: an olive bread that she twisted before baking: Oliver Twist!

I have an idea that I am really happy with: I am punning on those enormously popular religious novels called "Left Behind." I'm making my favorite butt roast (the mock porchetta from the Zuni Cafe cookbook--YUM!) and placing it on the left side of a big platter. Left behind, get it?

It suddenly occurred to me while reading this Board that chowhounds would probably be full of good ideas for edible puns on book titles. Let the punning begin!
