We all have our favorite holiday stories. And, of course, the holidays usually center around families and food. That means in those favorite stories, the characters are probably, at some point, seated around a festive meal at a dining room table.
Cuisine can play an important part in books – whether it sets a mood or illustrates the tastes of a character. So how about we take a moment to salute food – especially holiday food? Type your favorite literary holiday dish (or one you just like eating) in the comments below – and if you have a SHORT recipe, go ahead and include that. (Short as in one paragraph, please don’t abuse this! The moderators are already cranky! Bah humbug!) Your entry should look something like:
Plum pudding (A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens)
Recipe: Go to the store, buy some, bring it home, heat it up.
Happy cooking and happy holidays to you all.
