Food Lover's Treasury by Lynda Murphy

Book Description

'I not only think about food all day, but I dream about it all night.' Henry Miller This is a book about food, and the food that's in books. Tucked away in many great literary works are some essential truths on the subject of consumption: that someone is always disappointed when a tart is halved; that roasted udder is best kept a once-in-a-lifetime experience; that oranges should always be eaten in private; that toast is criminally under-appreciated, though even James Bond can't get enough of it. Other less well-known truths include the fact that kippers can be cooked on an iron; gravy expectation is high amongst commercial gentlemen; and every child at some time sees their name written in treacle. These extracts - some hilarious, some tragic, some downright bizarre - demonstrate that food is one of the great overlooked themes of literature, and pursuing this theme is a good excuse to re-read some classics. Each of the quotations if fully references, so that the reader can 'source' the favoured titbits, and seek out further treats for themselves.
