Dinah Fried: Fictitious Dishes

by Rachel Baker on April 24, 2014

There’s a new book out by Dinah Fried titled Fictitious Dishes. Amazon (linked at the bottom) describes the book as such: Fictitious Dishes serves up a delectable assortment of photographic interpretations of culinary moments from contemporary and classic literature. Showcasing famous meals such as the madcap tea party from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the watery gruel from Oliver Twist, the lavish chicken breakfast from To Kill a Mockingbird, the stomach-turning avocado-and-crabmeat salad from The Bell Jar, and the seductive cupcakes from The Corrections, this unique volume pairs each place setting with the text from the book that inspired its creation. Interesting food facts and entertaining anecdotes about the authors, their work, and their culinary predilections complete this charming book, which is sure to whet the appetites of lovers of great literature and delicious dishes.

This sounds like a great coffee table book, really.

The Daily Beast has put together a slide show of seven of the meals pictured and the book reference the meal goes with.
