Edible Book Festival

1st Annual Edible Book Festival

The Georgetown University Library's Booth Family Center for Special Collections invites you to turn your favorite book into edible art. You could win a $100 gift card to DogTag Bakery or a copy of Bon Appetit’s “Best Baking Book of the Year 2017” title Bravetart at the Library’s first annual Edible Book Festival. This year’s judges include Ethan Henderson, the Library’s Rare Book Curator, Rev. Matthew Carnes, S.J.,and Rebecca Clerget, Director of Operations for DogTag Bakery! At this festival, you can let your creativity run wild to create artwork made from edible materials inspired by the look or the content of your favorite titles!

Haven’t been to an edible book festival before? Check out some amazing examples of edible art created at other institutions. In the past, "edible books" have been made from cake, breadsticks, chocolate, veggies, even matzo meal! Guests and judges don’t need to taste your entry so don’t worry about finding the perfect recipe, use whatever provides you with the visual you like.

Sign up now to create and show off your edible art! Registration will be open through Friday, March 23. Don’t have the crafting bug? That’s okay, join us on April 4 to see all the entries and vote for the fan favorite!
