Fictional Food: The oh-so-yummy food/book connection

Considering that it combines two of my favorite things EVARRR, food and books, you can see why the blog Fictional Food is one I’m going to be checking obsessively. It highlights foods eaten in books, and posts recipes and ideas for making your own. It’s also begun to feature recipes from comics, games, movies, and television. How cool is that?!

Right now I’m obsessing over The Hunger Games section of the site, especially this giant list. Who knew there was so much food eaten in The Hunger Games? A THG movie release party at the library is brewing in my head…it would be great to feature some of these dishes (well, perhaps not the roasted rabbit).

Of course, this brings up the delicious question of what other good food fiction books are out there. I always drooled a little when reading what the characters cook in the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, as well as all the feasting that happens in Redwall. What other food-centric books can you think of? Post ‘em in the comments! I’m off to get a snack!
