A Taste for Books

Columbia College celebrates The International Edible Book Festival, which takes place annually on the first of April, by asking chefs who like books, book-lovers who like food, and anyone in-between to create a piece of literature good enough to eat.

Want to try your hand? Contact contact Gina Ordaz at (312) 369-6630 by 5pm, March 26. Just want to attend? Buy tickets in advance or at the door.

Last year's toothsome tomes can be seen here.
