For the ninth year, New Haven’s Creative Arts Workshop has opened its doors and its mouth to the international fun contest “Edible Books Tea.” Children and adults are encouraged to take a favorite book and translate it through food into something edible.
This year’s entries included a pretzel and cookie campfire display that represented the book “Kind’ling,” a diorama of vegetables
that introduced “The Secret Garden,” a giant cookie to tell the tale (tail) of “Harry the Dirty Dog,” a yummy pink, black and white frosted tent to represent “Nighttime at the Circus,” and a unique hive of cereal squares glued together by peanut butter to be “The Secret Lives of Bees,” among others.
Once the books have been admired, the audience of lookers gets to eat them ….hence, edible books. Tea is optional.
