Bookczuk began this challenge several years ago as a loosely organized short Challenge centered around a local Food/Wine Festival in Charleston SC, her hometown. (Alas, the 2021 festival is cancelled, as so many events have been due to COVID-19. If your area has food-related festivals - at this point I'm thinking Australia and New Zealand - feel free to mention them; otherwise we'll release books in honor of food and wine, and hope for better times!) By popular demand the duration of the challenge has expanded to a full month.
Re books to release: Pretty much anything goes as long as you can relate the book somehow to food or beverages via topic, title, author, and/or cover illustration. Any type of release is fine; wild, controlled, releases to OBCZs and LFLs, etc. I'll award wings-for-a-month or a wishlist book to the person with the most releases, and to another randomly-chosen participant.
So what can you release?
Cookbooks are good, as are books with food in the title or author-name:
Driving Over Lemons
Like Water for Chocolate
Five Quarters of an Orange
I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti
Traveling with Pomegranates
Kitchen, by Banana Yoshimoto
Books with some passing relation to any of the above are also good:
Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession
The Main Corpse (and other punny food/meal-themed titles)
A Pirate's Tale (for the embedded "ate" - and also "ale")
And books with food on the cover are also good. In short, if you make me believe that it fits, it will count.
Multiple challenges are fine too, in fact I encourage them - and since this challenge overlaps both February and March, you can double-up some of these releases with the February challenges and others with the March ones.
See last year's thread ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/566261 ) for examples of releases.
