Edible Book Contest
The Edible Book Festival, sponsored by the Food for Thought Cookbook Club in celebration of National Library Week, will take place on Saturday, April 11, in the Library’s meeting room. Click here for an entry form. ...
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). Entries will be judged by members of the public in the following categories: Best Use of Chocolate, Most Literary, Most Creative, Most Unusual Use of Food, and Best Non-Cake Book. Winners of each category will get a gift certificate from Sweet Spot Bake Shoppe in Chester. The other entries will receive ShopRite gift cards, so everyone will be a winner. Once all the entries are judged and prizes awarded, everyone will have a grand time eating the entries!
