Literary Lunches

Here's a delightful idea from Dinah Fried who has recreated some famous dishes in literature; Oliver Twist's workhouse gruel, the high tea place setting that Alice would have had in Wonderland and the swiss cheese sandwiches and malted milk Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye would have eaten (I guess; I've not read it but must!).  Would love to see more and more of this series; what about Proust's madeleine dipped in the tisane in Remembrance of Things Past or even a jolly Famous 5 picnic of pork pies and hardboiled eggs with lashings of ginger beer?  http://www.dinahfried.com/fictitious-dishes/
