Bite Notes

  • Take comfort in a dish of Dutch oven-cooked pot roast while you read Caitlin Starling’s anxiety-inducing The Luminous Dead. You can find the recipe in Matty Matheson’s Matty Matheson: A Cookbook. 
  • Pair Wires and Nerve with Homemade Moon Pies. These are delicious cookies sandwiched with marshmallow crème and dipped in chocolate.
  • If only the characters in The Buried Giant had a batch of Crispy Peanut Butter Treats with Chocolate Chips to fortify them on their quest! Find this recipe in Alicia Silverstone’s cookbook The Kind Diet.
