Craig BorethIt seems like a guy who wrote a book about fatherhood should also know a thing or two about how to cook.

That is, to follow on Twitter.

Hemingway CookbookAnd Craig is no stranger to cooking. A few years back he also published The Hemingway Cookbook and went on to become a food writer for the Boston Globe and elsewhere.  The cookbook is a culinary bio of Hemingway, featuring more than 120 recipes from his life and writing.

Per Craig,

“I started the book after traveling to Paris and Spain after graduation. It started as a travel guide to The Sun Also Rises and morphed into a cookbook.”

Favorite recipes include:

On a food related note, Craig has been been developing a story about three fictional meetings between Hemingway and another famous foodie, Pablo Neruda (first in Paris in the 20s, then Madrid during the Spanish Civil War and finally on the coast of Chile in the 50s).  Per Craig, “Food, obviously, will play a key role in their tempestuous encounters.”
