Tis the season… to stuff our faces 😉 Okay, that’s probably not the point of the season, but that’s what I’m going to be doing 😉 And since I’m thinking about food, I thought I’d share some of my favourite foody books!
The Hobbit– because Hobbits reallllly understand the importance of tea… and breakfast… and second breakfast… and elevenses… It doesn’t hurt that one of the first scenes in the book is a party, where poor Bilbo’s pantry gets raided, either!
Chronicles of Narnia– because it gave me a craving for Turkish Delights… I guess the White Witch would’ve had me eating out of the palm of her hand 😉
Alice in Wonderland– more tea? Okay, admittedly, the food in Wonderland often comes with a cost… but that doesn’t mean it’s not tempting 😉
Heartless– I’ll admit this book didn’t blow me away quite as much as Meyer’s other books or the original- but gosh darn it, I got pretty peckish reading it!
Harry Potter– I mean, I wouldn’t be a real millennial if I didn’t mention Harry Potter 😉 And let’s be real, Rowling definitely got me started on my craving for fictional food! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I wish all the food in this series was real!! Everything from Bertie Bott’s Every Flavoured Beans to Fizzing Whizzbees to Chocolate Frogs to Butterbeer to Pumpkin Pasties… I want to try it all!
Carry On– as a parody of Harry Potter, it certainly didn’t hurt that Rowell kept up with the foody descriptions. Sure, the foods were all a bit more real-world-y (cherry scones… yum!)– but that’ll only serve to make your hunger pangs worse!
Night of Cake and Puppets– this was yet another delectable read from Laini Taylor. Her writing is always scrumptious and her romance was super sweet, yet here she excels in the foody descriptions as well!
To all the boys– there are so many things to love about this adorable series. One of my favourite parts is all the wonderful treats Lara Jean bakes over the course of these books- not to mention other food along the way- this is definitely guaranteed to make you hungry! 😀
Chocolat– I can barely think of this book without salivating! This book about a confectionary shop in a remote French village is the kind of book that titillates the senses in every way!
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory– this is a classic for a reason- and I bet I’m not the only one who had dreams of getting my very own Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory when I was young! (though admittedly, I’d probably have failed very early on, because how does one resist a chocolate waterfall?! 😉)
And that’s all for now! What are your favourite foody moments in books? Let me know in the comments!
