edible book 5 459x400 Eat Your Words

The International Edible Book Festival is held annually across the world, since the year 2000. There are three participation rules, and they are quite simple and straightforward. The event must be held on or around April 1, all edible books must be “bookish,” and participants must register with the festival’s organization, via their website, To date, at least 18 countries have participated in the event. This festival is a “celebration of the ingestion of culture and a way to concretely share a book; it is also a deeper reflexion on our attachment to food and our cultural differences.” The festival pays homage to Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, whose birthday was April 1. The now infamous Brillat-Savarin was a French gastronome and author of “Physiologie du goût,” and now sadly, to one of its founders, Judith A. Hoffberg, who passed away this past January.
