An unusual cookbook for literature lovers with delicious recipes inspired by great scenes in literature. Literature is nourishment. The author has created inventive menus to accompany the pleasures of reading Proust, Isak Dinesen, and Charlotte BrontU. Along with tempting your palate with luscious cuisineincluded are over fifty recipesyou'll learn how very central food is in Anna Karenina, Moby-Dick, Jane Eyre, and Marjorie Morningstar. If there were no joint of meat in Roald Dahl's Lamb to the Slaughter, the philandering husband would be living happily with his new love. Without the dirty cup of tea in Doris Lessing's A Good Neighbour, Jane Somers might never wake up to love; and Rose in Alice Munro's Royal Beatings might be able to resist her stepmother if she could resist salmon sandwiches. A perfect gift to bring to a dinner party. Included are recipes for Queso Rellono (Serenade); Chicken Tarragon (The Sweet Dove Died); Quail with Potatoes and Grapes (Babette's Feast); Lamb Ó la Robin (David Copperfield); and Meat Tart (Ethan Frome). Menu inspired by The Magic Mountain: Roast Duck with Cranberry Conserve Fresh Spinach Sauteed in Olive Oil & Nutmeg Mix of Brown and Wild Rice Creamed Turnip Casserole Pear Conserve with Vanilla Ice Cream and Crumbled Amaretti
