Imagine taking your every experience with love and sex and sharing the intimate details with the world. Taking the heartbreak, joy and peaks of bliss of your relationships, breaking them down into every image and feeling, opening your heart and soul, pouring the writhing guts upon the floor and exposing yourself.

A trip into the pages of her book Love + Cooking is a trip into the soul of Tanille Geib.  Her experience in and out of love, lost in the intimacy of lovemaking and the passion of sex.

The pages are scattered with poetry, lyrics, recipes, paintings and letters.

“I classify myself a lover of humans,” Geib explains. “I’m kind of all over the place, but my main focus is connecting with humans and so whatever genre I find myself doing that, that’s kind of the goal.”

Short story Yogurt Cunt launches book idea

Her book was one of the projects that came out of the creative writing program last term at Langara College. After being awarded second place in the creative non-fiction category for her chapter Yogurt Cunt, she published it in W49 Literary magazine.

“It made me realize that I have a product that people are interested in,” said Geib. “That was sort of the jump off for this project.”

Beginning writing poetry at seven years old, Geib has filled her life with theatre, producing and art. She found inspiration in her relationships and the pages of her journal. The patterns became apparent when a common theme of sex and food emerged.  Everyone she meets inspire her to tell stories and share the world through her eyes.

“Even in the bedroom when people bring their flavours to it, I am so interested in connecting with people and seeing what makes them tick,” said Geib.

The relationship between food and sex in the book shows a documented evolution that took place over the last 10 years for Geib.

The focus on the importance of feeding our bodies and pleasuring all of our senses brings forth the connection between our mind and our how we interpret every sense.

Next book about gluten-free, penis-free life

After a diagnosis of celiac disease and the end of her relationship with Bryan, her lover in the book, Geib was inspired to begin her next writing project from a gluten-free, penis-free lifestyle.

With the book launch for Love + Cooking coming up on April 12 at the Beaumont Studios, Geib is excited for fun and exciting projects heading her way.

Love + Cooking has also been slated for production as an immersive play through the In the House Festival next June.
