‘One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.’

Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

Prepare your senses for a feast of delicious food scenes in literature accompanied with recipes to bring them to life in your very own kitchen, including Turkish delight Edmund wouldn’t be able to resist, roast goose the Cratchits would be proud of and cucumber sandwiches Algernon would be loath to share.
This book is perfect for anyone who enjoys spending their days with a book in one hand and a saucepan in the other.

Reviews

‘[a] neat little book… it’s a curious read and might come in handy if you’re hosting a book club meeting. Anna Karenina’s mushroom pate, anyone’
