Yep, I am still not cooking much, and thus spending undue quantities of time on line when I am not working or. . . . And, so I am sharing some of my perusals through this web site. I like it when food meets other things -- as, for example, a main theme of this site -- the meeting of food and murder mysteries. This time, though, it is literature meeting food in another way. In this case, the issue is photographs of food which are made as a result of -- or linked to -- literary examples. NPR has a piece, by Laura Krantz, entitled "Photographing Literature's Famous Food Scenes." And here it is. Krantz is actually reporting on the work of Dinah Fried who is actually doing the photographing and thus making Krantz (and me) happy.
Among the texts she works with are Catcher in the Rye and Alice in Wonderland, The Bell Jar and, of course, Proust -- as well as much more recent texts. Of course, this discovery led me to google away on a sunny day (which I must stop), finding, for example, this site which lists lots of fun food scenes in literature -- and asks for more in the comment section -- how about your ideas -- here, or there?
