“I hate people who are not serious about meals. It is so shallow of them.” – The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

23 Oct

This blog is dedicated to the  various meals, drinks and feasts found in literature of all sorts. Whether you go in for chunks of charred meat and onion roasted over an open fire, or you start your day off with a scotch and soda like Philip Marlowe; I hope you enjoy this journey as I eat my way through literature, one page at a time.

In addition to literature; I also plan to eat my way through art, history and cinema. Stay tuned for lots of delicious dishes!

I also plan to highlight some of the mini foods I make – 1/12″ scale polymer clay food made for adult dollhouse collectors. I am a member of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans; and enjoy making wee meals as much as I enjoy making “big” meals.

A note about the recipes you’ll find here: cooking isn’t an exact science (um, thank god!). Meals are the manifestation of raw materials, imagination, attention and love; and so, no two dishes will ever be exactly the same. I’m not much of an exact science kind of gal, and so while I’ll do my best to provide you accurate measurement…sometimes you have to just go on faith. Taste as you go, trust your instincts and of course, trust your gut (heehee). If you think your dish needs a little more garlic and a little less onion, then by all means – adjust it. Cooking should be fun.
