The WNY Book Arts Center hosts another local edition of the International Edible Book Contest on April 1.
The contest's goal is merging the worlds of food and books in a work of art that plays on both, limited only by the creativity and culinary cleverness of the artists. Last year's entries included "Booklava: An Edible Odyssey," printed on phyllo leaves, then baked with a baklava base, and "Essay on the Essays of Francis Bacon," sporting covers woven out of bacon, with scallion hinges and omelet filling.
Here's pictures of last year's entries in Buffalo, and others from many editions of the globe-spanning contest.
Entries need to be registered by March 29, by filling out a form on the group's website. There's a limit of 40 entries. The finished works should be delivered to WNYBAC, 468 Washington St., between 2 and 4 p.m., April 1.
Entry is $5, which includes two tickets to the event. Otherwise, it's $10 ($5 for WNYBAC members and children).
Judging takes place by 7 p.m. Then everyone gets a chance to taste the tomes.
