The 8th Annual Edible Books Festival took place April 1, 2013.
Check out the winners and
Around April 1st, bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers around the world gather to celebrate the book arts and the (literal!) ingestion of culture. Participants create an "edible book," which can be inspired by a favorite tale, involve a pun on a famous title, or simply be in the shape of a book (or scroll, or tablet, etc). All entries will be exhibited, documented, then EATEN! Photographs of all edible books will appear in the Edible Book Festival gallery.
Starting to think about your edible creation for this year's festival?
Whether you're a professional chef or just like to play with your food, the festival is open to anyone in the UIUC & Champaign-Urbana communities. For inspiration, take a look at entries from last year's event, available in the 2012 Gallery. If you don't have time to make your own edible entry, join us in admiring the delicious creations at 11:30 am!
