    This week's Fun Friday Survey is on something we can't live without (no not books! although maybe that too) - FOOD!

    As always, less than 10 questions.  Its fun, and we get a summary of some of the great results by Wednesday.
    So while it would be great to Brunch together in person, let's see if this survey fills that communal need.

    Fun Friday Survey from SLA NY - Food

    Thanks,

    It's nice to share our likes adn desires when it comes to a subject we all have to contend/enjoy.  Food fits that bill.
    Thanks to all who participated.

    Top takeaways:
    The clear winner for fav TV Foodie show - Great British Baking Show (BBC & Channel 4)
    - And now we have a population that knows - "Prove" the dough
    - So, "now, on your mark, get set, BAKE!"

    The #1 comfort food winner is ... Mac & Cheese!
    In case you did not know, but based on the responses I suspect many of you already do know, Jul. 14 is National Mac and Cheese Day.  So be sure to keep that day marked on your calendars.
    And in case you are looking for some 'bad' mac & cheese quotes to solidify your love of this comfort food, here are a few:
    "I'll stop the world and melt with you. You've seen the difference and it's getting cheddar all the time "
    "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I do dis a brie? I cheddar the world and a Feta cheese. Everybody's looking for Stilton."
    "Hello, is it brie you're looking for?"
    "To brie or not to brie, that is the question."

    Lastly, we wouldn't be librarians if we didn't have some cookbook recs
    • Peas love and carrots, NY Times Food links
    • A Fistful of Lentils by Jennifer Abadi or Mediterranean Kitchen: Main Course by Sarina Roffe
    • The Microwave Bible by Norene Gilletz
    • Cookbooks by British cook Delia Smith
    • Vegetable kingdom by Bryant Terry - colorful and delicious recipes, and vegan too.
    • Lewd Food : the complete guide to aphrodisiac edibles – more to enjoy as a book


    Thanks for playing along.
    Special thanks to Emma Davidson for putting the Foodie Survey together.
    Look for the next Fun Friday Survey this Friday on Bookstores!
    Thanks, SLA NY Events Committee
