Dinah Frieds Literature-Food is a Book

Über Dinah Frieds tolle Fotoserie Fictious Dishes, in der sie Speisen aus Literatur-Klassikern nachkocht und in passender Anrichtung ablichtet, hatte ich schonmal vor zwei Jahren gebloggt. Damals waren's erst fünf Bilder aus ihrem Studium und seit dem ist einiges hinzugekommen, darüber hinaus gibt's die Leckereien jetzt auch als Buch. Immer noch ganz großartige Idee.

Fictitious Dishes serves up a delectable assortment of photographic interpretations of culinary moments from contemporary and classic literature. Showcasing famous meals such as the madcap tea party from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the watery gruel from Oliver Twist, the lavish chicken breakfast from To Kill a Mockingbird, the stomach-turning avocado-and-crabmeat salad from The Bell Jar, and the seductive cupcakes from The Corrections, this unique volume pairs each place setting with the text from the book that inspired its creation. Interesting food facts and entertaining anecdotes about the authors, their work, and their culinary predilections complete this charming book, which is sure to whet the appetites of lovers of great literature and delicious dishes.

1.) Franz Kafkas Die Verwandlung: „There were old, half-rotten vegetables; bones from the evening meal, covered in white sauce that had gone hard; a few raisins and almonds; some cheese that Gregor had declared inedible two days before; a dry roll and some bread spread with butter and salt…“)
2.) Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland: „Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea.“
