Oh my goodness oh my goodness oh my goodness. I can’t describe how much I love this. Dinah Fried, a New York based designer and art director has recreated some of literatures most memorable dishes and made them into a book. The goats cheese Heidi eats in the swiss alps, Alice in Wonderland’s tea party, Oliver Twist’s gruel, one of the intriguing nordic meals served with black coffee that keep being described in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the opulence of a Gatsby feast and the breakfast Cal makes with Tom Robinson’s chicken in To Kill a Mockingbird.
Descriptions of food are such a big part in the pleasure of reading. If Instagram existed in these fictional worlds, I hope at least some of the characters would like taking photos of their food as much as I do!
