Food Through the Pages pleases the palate
A selection of dishes taken from works of literature, Food Through the Pages highlights items like venison stew from Diana Gabaldon’s Drums of Autumn, klava with honey from Steven Brust’s Vlad Taltos series, and chili from Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. The blog also feature sections on historical cookery and dishes inspired by popular fairy tales.
In a post, blog creator Chelsea Monroe-Cassel says that she started Food Through the Pages because “some food is so integral to the plot of a book, or so embodies the world of the characters that we don’t even need to be told what story is from. So many great works of fiction use details like food to enrich the story, and much like the background music in films, these subtle additions deepen the scope of a reader’s experience.”
Along with fellow fictional foodie Sariann Lehrer, Monroe-Cassel is also the driving force behind the Inn at the Crossroads food blog and the recently published Game of Thrones-themed cookbook, A Feast of Ice and Fire. Clearly, this girl knows what she’s talking about.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I hear my kitchen calling my name.
