These Books Taste So Good: Making Recipes From The Mortal Instruments And More

Recent dishes she has made include her City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments menu (“Food is woven throughout and Taki’s dinner is the only major food scene” ) and her best friend Jess Wills writes young adult book reviews for website Tales of the Compendium, which introduced Taylor to a number of new authors. “I’m constantly raiding her bookshelf,” she said. “My favorite series would be Perry Mason novels by Erle Stanley Gardner. I also like Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield, Zac and Mia by A.J. Betts and Life In Outer Space by Melissa Kiel.”

Why does Taylor do this? There are no adverts on her blog. The answer? It’s all about passion and loving what she does.

"If I’ve caused someone to get excited or inspired when they see the food, I feel I’ve done what I’ve set out to do, and that makes me proud. Harry Potter’s Alcoholic Butterbeer, Wonka’s Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight Chocolate Bar, Snow White’s Once Upon A Time Apple Pie and Treasure Island’s Kraken Rum Cake have all been favorites."
