What a fun book. It would be great to have a dinner party of this same theme! ( )

I love this idea! The left page has a passage from a (usually) well-known piece of literature that mentions food, and the right-hand page has a photo of the actual food.

Sounds less interesting than it really is, I swear.

Bibliophiles will enjoy it! People who like food will enjoy it! ( )

The concept is something I wish I'd thought of: the author reproduces a passage about food from a novel (mostly classics, some modern novels, a few kids' books), and includes a few random facts about the book or the food or the author, suitable for the "Did You Know?" conversation starter at a cocktail party. Below that, she has a photographic representation of the food, with ambience carefully taken into account. A rustic meal might have tin dishes and a rough-hewn wooden table; a fancy tea includes a china moustache cup. Seeing the visual approximations of the written descriptions is unexpectedly delightful. So even though I think this is something I could have done myself with a few spare hours, it was extremely enjoyable. ( )

The author started the book as a design project while she was at The RI School of Design and then got so interested that she continued and this book is the result. On each set of facing pages, she has a literary passage on the left page and a photo she has cooked and composed on the right page. Under the passage from the book, she has included a few "footnote" facts - some about the book, some about the author, and some are interesting facts about the food. I quite enjoyed this book. ( )
