The Little Women Cookbook

Novel Takes on Classic Recipes from Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy and Friends

Join the March family for joyous Christmas breakfasts, lovely lunches, scrumptious desserts, and more!

You already adore the story of these four sisters who, with little means, find their own paths in a tale full of laughter, love, loss, and family. Now, experience Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel in an entirely new and delightful way—as a cookbook.

You’ll learn to make ice cream with Meg, molasses candy with Jo, baked squash with Beth, pickled limes with Amy, and so much more. For a creative twist, these delicious step-by-step recipes are adapted from vintage Civil War-era cookbooks for the modern kitchen.

A perfect gift for Little Women fans everywhere, the book is packed with beautiful color photographs, timeless illustrations, favorite passages, historical trivia, and additional commentary by the authors, founders of 36 Eggs, the literary food blog.

"A joy to simply browse through and ideal for planning truly memorable meals with, the Little Women Cookbook is an engagingly unique and unreservedly recommended addition to . . . cookbook collections."
