If you love great books and dishes they've made famous…..

Jacket.aspx …you’ll love this little book. Photographic interpretations of culinary moments from great literature are paired with text from the book which inspired them. When Oliver Twist dared to ask “Please, sir I want some more” we imagine what his bowl of porridge looked like. When Melville’s Queequeg and Ishmael eat creamy New England clam chowder, we envision a steamy bowl of tasty stew. Author Dinah Fried prepared and photographed fifty memorable dishes described in literature and created the charming book “Fictitious Dishes: An Album of Literature’s Most Memorable Meals.” From Daphne Du Maurier’s “Rebecca,” Fried recreates…..”Those dripping crumpets, I can see them now. Tiny crisp wedges of toast, and piping-hot, flaky scones. Sandwiches of unknown nature, mysteriously flavored and quite delectable, and that very special gingerbread.” Try it you’ll like it! chowder3crumpetsberries toast3-1 gruel2
