Have Your Book, and Eat It, Too

The Chevy Chase Library will be having an Edible Book Contest on Saturday, October 2, at 1 p.m.

What is an Edible Book Contest?

An edible book contest is a fun and creative way to celebrate reading. Express yourself through a literary culinary creation: whether it's an edible version of your favorite book’s cover, a yummy pun on its title, or a reference to a scene or character.

What are the contest guidelines?

1. Your edible book creation is...edible!
2. Your edible book is family-friendly.
3. Your creation has something to do with a book.
4. You disclose the ingredients of your edible book.

So, when should I be there?

1 p.m. – The judging begins.

Anything else going on that day?

While the Judges are deciding, learn how to make fondant.

What are the prizes?

First prize is a free cake from Bread and Chocolate!

Other Prizes include gift cerificates from Child's Play and Starbucks!
