What can be better and more fulfilling than books? It's food, of course! Never has anything else has combined more perfectly with a book. A book can have many reasons to stick on your mind. One of the reason could be that it has the most intriguing foods that makes you wonder and imagined the look and taste of it. Mere descriptions from the book is not enough for some of us to feel satisfied. Books has always been a great source of recipes. From potions to elixirs and varieties of other foods, it has never stop us from wanting. I remember reading Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler and it was full of cupcake recipes. I remember thinking about how I wish I can just grab the foods through the pages and yank it out and eat it instead of just reading about it and salivating. But because of the lack of ability to put my hands through the pages, I resort to making the food on my own with the help from recipes I found online. So I went in search for iconic foods from books and I found several recipes that looks so delicious! Definitely want to try these!
1. Kiwi Pie from Lola and The Boy Next Door
So someone had a vision to put kiwi in a pie! Who would have thought, eh?
Looks like it will taste great too.
You can get the recipe at The Reader and The Chef.
2. Lorax Decorated Cookies
Omg! Don't that just look so cute! This will be perfect to enjoy with kids. You can get the recipe at Sweetopia.

10. Frothy Raspberry Soup from the Capitol
Hunger Games may be well known for Peeta's bread, but for me the frothy raspberry soup that Katniss ate in the train is by far the most salivating for me. Just look at all that colour! It looks so good and I bet it taste better! Get the recipe at Fictional Food.
