What we're about
This group is for those who love reading, eating, and are even happier when they can combine the two! "Voracious: A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way through Great Books" is this group's inspiration. Join us while we read great novels and culminate our literary experiences through lively discussion and delicious food inspired by the literature.
How does this book club work?
In the middle of the preceding month, we pick a novel (genres and themes vary wildly, so there's lot of variety) and spend the next month reading at leisure (for example, we pick our July read in the middle of June). Towards the end of the month, we meet up at somewhere in the DC Metro area to discuss the book and dive into some delicious food centered around the theme or setting of the novel, whether that be cooking up recipes inspired by the novel or enjoying a meal at a restaurant representative of our book. As foodies who love to read, it gives us the chance to indulge our intellect and our stomachs at the same time.
What if I don't finish the book?
It doesn't matter! As long as you don't mind spoilers, we want you to be there.
Do you only read books?
Not at all; we will sprinkle in movies based on books, plays, book festivals, foodie events around town and the like to keep things interesting and provide other means to enjoy what great writing (and great food!) has to offer.
