    How wonderful that you are coming to our area! I hope the weather is nice for you. I have loved my Spilling the Beans cookbook so much, I’ve used it like crazy. Don’t let the fog scare you off, but you must visit the Stanley Park Ghost train for fun!

    With Peirre’s illustrations and your fantastic recipes, this is going to be one great book. I’d love to have a copy for my cookbook library.

    Good luck in Vancouver!

    Why do I feel like I’m 10 again and want to spend the day reading in bed??

    Hope you are enjoying foggy Vancouver. At least you don’t have to shovel fog!! I don’t like driving in it but it doesn’t last forever. I lived in Northern BC for many years and do not miss the snow.

    Would love a copy of the cookbook although I’m not allowed to buy any more cookbooks until I start using them…really enjoy reading them more then cooking.

    What a brilliant idea for a cookbook! As the auntie of a 6 year old girl who adores her tea parties, I know this book will feature in many of our future menu planning sessions. Looking forward to cooking our way through a magical story.

    Your creativity extends well beyond cooking. I only just started following you and have very much enjoyed perusing thru your recipes. I have tried several and while they may not look as pretty as yours do they are very tasty just the same! I am so glad you are here in Vancouver while the weather is so
    beautiful. Fall is an excellent time of year to visit. (Yes it is sunny and warm further out in the valley).

    Looks awesome Julie- congrats! Excited to try some recipes with my son as he loves to bake!! (You’re 2 min banana bread recipe is a staple in our house!)

    Oops meant to write *your* in the above post. It would drive me crazy if I didn’t try to fix that! ;)

    I have no memory of these appearing in Alice – now I’ll have to read it again! Or, even better, get my mitts on a copy of this book!

  16. Laurie

  17. Rebecca

    Those pretzels look dangerous. And I identified with your analogy between you and Alice. Me, too.

  20. Adrienne
    October 23, 2013

  25. Laura C
    October 23, 2013

    Congrats! Wish I had the book already for book club tomorrow night… Wonder what type of gluten free ‘stick’ I can use vs. pretzels – I would hate to miss out on this treat.

  26. Alicen
    October 23, 2013

    Amazing! The recipes will be fantastic (as yours always are) and the illustrations are great!

    October 23, 2013

    I borrowed your cookie book from the local public library. Love it! We’ll be using the biscotti recipes for a cd release that our church is hosting. I’d love to have a copy of the Alice book to give my niece for Christmas.

    I can’t wait to try these. It’s a good excuse to use the candy thermometer I bought years ago and haven’t found the time to use!

  42. Trish
    October 23, 2013

    What a charming idea for a book! I’ve read some good reviews on it and have been looking for it in the local bookstores.

  43. Catherine
    October 23, 2013

    Your recipes are always fantastic and Pierre’s illustrations are beautiful. If I don’t win a copy, I will be purchasing anyway!

  44. Ladean

    Such a creative idea and beautiful looking book. My plan is to purchase the book anyway but winning it would be a bonus! Good luck and congrats.

    October 23, 2013

    Wow, that looks great. I’m supposed to be making snacks for the Halloween Dance on Friday, I might just make these. They would be fun all packaged up in those little treat bags, wouldn’t they? Mmmm.

    Alice Eats looks so fun. What a great idea!

  58. Susan
    October 23, 2013

    Sounds like a book to get for my grandchildren, then we could have more fun in the kitchen making “tea”

  59. Colette
    October 23, 2013

    Hey! we are in the same city at the same time (I’m normally in China)- love the idea of art and food together- wish I could take time off work to see you at your book events. Best of luck.

  60. Rose
    October 23, 2013

    Julie, I share your sentiments about feeling like a ginormous blonde girl taking up altogether too much space, but then I remind myself that this means there is more room for delicious treats like salted caramel pretzels and all is right with the world again! What an inventive and inspired culinary adventure this book seems to be! I can’t wait to read and try the recipes!

  61. Nancy
    October 23, 2013

    YUM! It is like mini Starbucks caramel pretzles, but you can eat like a hundred because they are mini and you made them at home!

  62. kickpleat
    October 23, 2013

    I know how you feel – but with red hair instead :) These look great – I may have to make them for our halloween party! I can’t wait to see this book & I’m so curious about the ginger carrot sandwiches you mentioned on twitter!!

  63. Amanda
    October 23, 2013

    mmmm those look lovely! I would love a book so that I can remember to make them!

  64. rbd
    October 23, 2013

    I used to love Alice, one of my very first favourite books, had many items in an Alice collection…then I learned he was a pedophile. I couldn’t possibly enjoy anything Alice again.

  65. Diane
    October 23, 2013

    I just bought some “seconds” at Oliver’s candies in Inglewood, but now I can see how easy it is to make my own. Thanks Julie.

  67. Meaghan
    October 23, 2013

    Is it embarrassing to admit I have never read Alice in Wonderland? I’m pretty sure I have never even seen a movie version of this classic. No, I do not live under a rock:) I like the idea of a cookbook/storybook, and the illustrations look beautiful. Happy travels!

  68. Sue
    October 23, 2013

    Wow. Have fun in Vancouver with your boy!
    I didn’t know about this book and I don’t think I ever read the original story.
    Sounds like a great Christmas gift idea (for myself and others!).

  69. Seth Munoz

    I wish I could come to your show but I’m working. I hope the fog lifts soon where you are – it burned off earlier today in Surrey than it has for more than a week! Sure would love to win your book! I bought my first one of yours (Grazing) after seeing you make (and tasting!) Chickpea Cookies at a show in Vancouver. Yum! It must have been awhile ago ’cause you were pregnant!

  97. Rose
    October 23, 2013

    Would love to give this book to my daughter (avid reader) who loves ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and your recipes! We try out your recipes all the time and love them. Definitely trying all the recipes in “Swerve’ magazine from ‘Alice Eats’.

  98. Brenda
    October 23, 2013

    There’s just something so magical about quirky little cookbooks…whimsy isn’t often a word that one can apply to the culinary arts. A collaboration between you and Pierre is terrific. Much success! It will surely be a Christmas hit…hope I win a copy so that I can make some of the recipes and also give the book away as my secret exchange present at “Our Secret Bookclub”!

  101. Kristine
    October 23, 2013

    I’d love to add this to the cookbook collection AND share in our family Christmas book exchange! Does the fact that my Mom’s name is Alice increase my odds?!

  102. DJ

  106. Donna

    Great idea. I thought Alice was a children’s book – here it is a cookbook – and my son is studying it in a University philosophy – type course. It has greater depth than I realized!

    Congrats on the book and the success of your tour!

    Meanwhile, you had my mouth watering with this recipe which inspired me to make a brittle from gluten-free pretzels, nuts and chocolate. I’ll have to pick up your book as you are an inspiration! Thanks.

    I saw Alice eats on global news few days ago, I instantly knew this is going to be a real hit .
    Love the illustration of the book and the demonstration live on noon news hour,. It’s a book for kids and mommys to have cookout together.

    Please let me know where I can buy a copy of the book, I live in Burnaby , B.C.
