ISBN: 9781841596198 Category: Tag:


A mouth-watering smorgasbord of stories with food in the starring role, by a rich variety of authors – from Dickens, Chekhov and Saki to Isak Dinesen, Jim Crace and Amy Tan. The menu also includes choice titbits from famous novels, including: the triumphant boeuf en daube served in Virginia Woolf’s ‘To the Lighthouse’, Proust’s rhapsodic memories of watching the family cook prepare asparagus in ‘Remembrance of Things Past’, and Zola’s extravagant ‘cheese symphony’ scene from ‘The Belly of Paris’.
