What a great, amusing collection of literary-themed cooking posts! TheKitchn’s Best of 2012 lists now includes a great post (From Writer’s Favorite Snacks to Cookie Monster’s Cookie Recipe: 10 Literary-Themed Posts You Loved This Year) to help you find out what famous authors drank, ate, and cooked.
Not only are/were these folks (Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Fleming, Whitman, Byron, Pollan) fascinating on the page, but their food selections and preferences can provide an added dimension to our understanding of their personalities.
Ok, writers. The pressure is on to acquire a great and quirky drinking and eating habit for posterity! ;o)
