Book Your Next Literary Meal

If you could order books in restaurants

Book Your Next Literary Meal – Imagine the scene for a moment.  You are hungry for a new book and also a little hungry for some food. What about if you could combine the two and eat the dishes out of novels? Here’s a sample menu. Have a look and see what you fancy.

Some meals are taken from the title but others are taken from the chapters as there has been some very tasty dishes in books lately. I say lately, I am still salivating over the birthday cake in Kate Morton’s The Secret Keeper.
