The Hawai‘i Edible Book Contest is part of The International Edible Book Festival (www.diffusionadage.com), a global celebration founded in honor of French gastronome, Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826). Famous for his book, Physiologie du goût, a witty meditation on food, Brillat-Savarin’s birthday was April 1st. It is the perfect day to eat your words and play with them as the "books" are consumed following the judging at the contest. This ephemeral global banquet, in which anyone can participate, is shared by all on the internet, and allows everyone to preserve and discover unique bookish nourishments. This contest is a celebration our love of food, our love of books and our cultural diversity.
