Book Bistro is a new feature here on the blog where I will share recipes found in books I’ve read or recipes inspired by characters in books I’ve read. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is one of my favorite books this year, and Tom and Jane play significant roles in this story, so I wanted to share a recipe inspired by Tom.
“I hear from Madeline that you’re a baker. So I wanted to get your expert opinion on this new recipe I’m trying. Peach, macadamia nut and lime. Crazy stuff. The lime, I mean.”
Tom and Jane had great chemistry, and I loved reading Tom’s subtle flirtations with Jane. Jane didn’t eat muffins, but she did bake them for everyone else to enjoy. Jane’s name became known for her baking abilities, among other things that I won’t spoil for you, and Tom shared that love of food as he ran the little beachside café called Blue Blues next to Pirriwee Beach in Australia, and he enjoyed experimenting with his culinary skills. These peach and macadamia nut muffins with a lime glaze are easy enough to prepare and are the perfect indulgence while reading Big Little Lies or to share with your book club during your Big Little Lies book club meeting. Bon Appétit!
And here’s the recipe…
What a great recipe for book clubs to enjoy while reading this amazing book! Bon áppetit!1
