Fictitious Dishes: Food From Famous Literature

Most fiction stories have some form of main character, a protagonist to remember long after the last page. Then there are stories where another type of character remains in our minds, reminding us like a small hunger of the story which came before: that character is food. From the famous porridge in Oliver Twist’s bowl to the cheese sandwich on toast with a chocolate milkshake from Catcher in the Rye, certain meals stand out while lending meaning and insight into those omnipresent and hungry protagonists.
