“Foodie” romance—romance novels that prominently feature food—is not an established genre, but don’t tell that to the growing number of people who seek out novels that feature food as the main theme. Noticing the increase in society’s appetite for all things food-related, author Ava Bleu sat down to draft tips on how food can be incorporated into fiction with a guide she plans to distribute for free: “Eight Ways to Stir Up Excitement in Your Romance Novel”. She hopes the publication will be motivation to other aspiring “Foodie” Romance authors who have heard the fuss, but have no idea how to venture into foodie romance.
“I haven’t met a romantic who wasn’t a food lover,” says Bleu, award-winning author of THE DIVA OF PEDDLER'S CREEK. Bleu says she knew going in that her novel would be more than a love story between a man and a woman. Her main character’s obsession with—and fear of —food creates a fun character study of a reformed food-lover forced to live under the roof of an award-winning home cook.
Bleu feels there is a valid argument to be made that food is more than an afterthought in today’s literature. “The inclusion of food-related themes, or stories surrounding food, enhances all types of fiction and people are doing it today like it’s never been done before. For some writers, food is an aspect as important as setting or dialogue; it is an essential component of theme, tone and character development.”
