Let’s chat about our favorite foodie characters.
I think we absolutely have to start with Julie from Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously. There is nothing more foodie than spending a year working through your favorite cookbook while saving your life.
Then there’s Nastya from Sea of Tranquility (one of our favorite YA novels here) with creation of cakes at Sunday dinner.
Also, check out Flavorwire’s recs for 50 Essential Novels for Foodies.
Goldy from the Goldy Bear Culinary Mysteries series by Diane Mott Davidson. She’s a caterer who solves murders. Right up my ally!
Theo from the Tea Shop Mystery series by Laura Childs. As a tea drinker, this is one tea shop that I would want to hang out in, despite all the murders!
The Cupcake Club series by Donna Kauffman is a great dessert after all those murders. Fluffy frosting and swoony romance in a cupcake shop.
How about you? Any favorite foodie characters?
