memory keepers daughter- food related
is anyone familiar with this book by kim edwards? it's our book club selection and normally people make the food to match the book. i can't figure out what to make- it starts in the 60s- maybe some retro ideas?
Great book! And what a fun idea for the book club to make themed food. I'm at a little bit of a loss on this one.
Perhaps food from Kentucky, where the book was set. Of course, I can only come up with bourbon off the top of my head, but maybe "southern" themed items?
Or, since the twins are central characters in the book, do items in twos?
Let us know how it goes!
I like the "twins" idea. How about making things in different ways--like one tuna noodle casserole from scratch and one with condensed soup; cake from scratch, one from a mix. Kind of an analogy for two different twins, one might seem "better" but some people prefer the other.
You might pick up a copy of the reissue of Sauce Pans and The Single Girl published in 1965. It came out this summer. I still have my 65 copy and the companion book, I have misplaced it but I think the totle was How to Keep Him After You Caught Him...something like that. But Saucepans is very very 60's and there is Jane and Michael Stern's A Taste of America too. Between those 2 you are sure to find appropriate foods.
