What was your New Year’s resolution? Maybe it was to create healthier habits or learn something new. If your 2022 goal fell under either of those categories, you can meet it at Read It and Eat It. Part bookstore, part demo kitchen, Read It and Eat It has a little something for everyone.
The front part of the shop is a bookstore dedicated solely to cookbooks. It might seem like a too-specific niche, but professional and novice chefs alike grant glowing reviews for its selection. The local business has a much larger collection of cookbooks than you’d find at a big-box bookstore. Of course you can shop cookbooks based on international types of cuisine, but you can also find some dedicated to different courses (brunch or tea time, for instance) or specific pastries—like macarons or eclairs. There are cookbooks for beginners and cookbooks for elite chefs. Some are about pies, some are about pizzas. What’s more, Read It and Eat It regularly hosts its own cooking demos and classes in-house, so if you want a little extra instruction beyond the page, their experts can provide it.
