Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: 2017 Edible Book Festival almost here

Amanda Mongolo
Special to the Sun

By the time you read this article, one of Incline Village Library’s most enjoyable events will only be two and a half weeks away.

That event is our fourth annual Edible Book Festival. This program is one of my favorites because, 1: I love food and we get to eat, and 2: I love to see the creativity of the entries.

The Edible Book Festival is simply a way we celebrate books via culinary expression. Participants base their food creations on a book using a literal or tongue-in-cheek theme.

There will be adult and youth prizes awarded for the most creative and best tasting dish. We are looking for participants and voters (this means you get to sample taste the entries!).

To sign up to enter your dish you may stop by the library, or contact Sarah at sharvey@washoecounty.us. Join us for this fun event on April 3 at 5:30 p.m. to taste and vote for your favorite dish.

If you are looking for inspirational recipes look no further than your local North Lake Tahoe libraries for a great assortment of cookbooks.
