Sometimes I love a book so much that it inspires me to explore the setting. Other times, I am traveling anyway and I happened to have read a book that takes place where I am going.

Jojo Moyes is a powerful writer. Her book was so complex and full that I wanted to learn more about the pack horse librarians of Kentucky. I researched different areas and found a wonderful little mountain town, Beattyville, KY.

Delia Owens is simply masterful in her literary grasp on nature. This book transported my mind to the marsh and I just wanted more! I loved every moment of this journey to Southport, NC. It really is a magical town and so reflective of Where the Crawdads Sing.

The Nerdy Gourmet

Hi friends!! I’m Jenni, The Nerdy Gourmet. I love books and I love food. Combining the two with a splash of travel has become my passion. I am a self taught cook/baker and I believe that everyone can cook from scratch! I’m here with recipes and Nerdy Tips to help along the way.  
I review books, mostly ‘read’ via audio, and I create recipes inspired by the story lines. Sometimes if I am deeply moved by a story, I will travel and try my best to experience the book- and bring you along via my blog! I provide all the photographs and content for the Nerdy Gourmet (unless otherwise noted).
