Bout of Books 8.0 – #Pairathon Challenge

Bout of Books 8.0 – #Pairathon Challenge

Hosted by Nikki @ Book Pairing

The premise is simple. I want to see what you’re out there reading and drinking or eating during Bout of Books. I’m nosy. But I also think that books and wine/food/beer are better when enjoyed together. So let’s share?

Cashew BeefMy pairing is Jim Steinmeyer’s The Glorious Deception and Hawaiian Cashew Beef. “But wait a minute, Katherine,” I hear you saying, “what does Hawaiian beef have to do with a Chinese conjurer? And those are peanuts, not cashews!” Well, Robinson was an American pretending to be half Chinese and half Scottish. I figure there’s nothing gained by getting technical in this case. I could change the name of this dish to be Ginger Peanut Beef, but what fun would that be?
