The International Edible Book Festival is an annual event that takes place around April 1 throughout the world that unites book-lovers, art-lovers and food-lovers to celebrate the ingestion of culture and its fulfilling nourishment. It is in honour of the birthday of the French gastronome Brillat-Savin (1755-1826).
An edible book is edible art that is inspired by a book. It can look like a book, be a pun on a title of a book, refer to a character in the book, or it can be a book created by you - however, whatever the inspiration, it must be made from 100% edible ingredients!
The Hong Kong 2009 Festival was held on 21 March at the Rotunda, Exchange Square, Central.
