The International Edible Book Festival is no joke. The event, conjured up by two women over a Thanksgiving dinner with book artists, has become an annual event around the world since 2000.The Edible Book Festival takes place annually “around April 1st.”
The festival coincides with the April (1755) birth date of Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, a French gastronome most noted for his book Physiologie du goût, “a witty meditation on food.”
Speaking of tasty things, the latest installment of my online serial novel, Forget About It: The First Al Zymer Senile Detective Mystery, has been posted here. An archive of the story thus far can be found here.
