San Diego Chefs Whip Up Literary Inspired Dishes

Ever wanted to eat what your favorite characters are eating in the books? Well, San Diego chefs are making that a possibility with a Eat. Read. Drink. program. The program has been running for ten years now, and each year ticket sales support the San Diego Council on Literacy, which is a no-cost literacy program. This year’s even will be hosted on Thursday, April 25th, from 6 to 830 p.m. at the San Diego Air and Space Museum.

Each year chefs try to recreate meals and recipes from favorite books. In the past chefs have created dishes inspired by classics like The Adventures of PinocchioAlice’s Adventures in WonderlandCharlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.

This year, chefs are hailing from San Diego favorites like Waypoint Public and Galaxy Taco. The event, which is perfect for foodies and bookworms alike, will see each chef recreate a dish from their own favorite literary work, and guests will be tasked with the job of tasting each creation. Awards will be given out in categories like “Best Dessert” and “People’s Choice.” To pair with these decadent plates, there will be breweries and wine tastings available as well.

Let us know if you’ll be attending this event! Tickets are still available. We can’t wait to see what the chefs whip up.
