Have you ever found yourself reading through a much loved book and, coming upon a passage containing descriptions of food, found yourself wishing you could pull up a chair and join the feast?
Like try the fascinating Ginger Scald-cocktail from Scott Lynch’s ‘Lies of Locke Lamora’ (see above) ?
Some food is so integral to the plot of a book, or so embodies the world of the characters that we don’t even need to be told what story is from. So many great works of fiction use details like food to enrich the story, and much like the background music in films, these subtle additions deepen the scope of a reader’s experience.
The Food Through the Pages blog features food taken from within works of fiction and made real and accessible for modern kitchens.
this is amazing. i’m far too much of a wimpy drinker to try it, mind you, but the recipe sounds very exciting!
