About Toasting Books
Toasting Books started after years of feeling that there should have been a place to go to pair wine with books. It quickly became apparent that wine wasn't the only option and out of my lifelong passion for fantastic drinks, both alcoholic and non, and even more fantastic books, the site was born.
How are the book and drinks selected?
Sometimes the books featured are classics that everyone has read. Sometimes it is something that I am reading currently or have just finished. Sometimes I am inspired by a friend or family member reminding me of a book.
At other times, it is the fantastic drink that comes first. A sip or taste can evoke the strongest memories and this sometimes prompts me to think of a book that the drink simply must be paired with.
It isn't as simple as looking for a drink that is featured in the book. Whilst it might seem obvious to read The Great Gatsby accompanied with a saucer of champagne or sip on a glass of milk with A Clockwork Orange, it has more to do with the emotions of the book, the season that you might be reading and drinking in, and a flash from the muse that cannot be explained.
I think you should pair this book with a drink/I have a fantastic drink for you to try...
