Five Novels with Food

Tunku Varadarajan gives an eclectic list of novels that contain compelling descriptions of food.

[I've never thought of The Wind in the Willows and gotten hungry.]

Two that I'd add:

A Debt to Pleasure by John Lancaster (About a psychotic gourmet);

A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole (Ignatius's venture into hot dog vending is too good for words).

Plus "Food of Love" by Anthony Capella - Cyrano de Bergerac with truffles, game, seasoning and slow simmering.

Sounds marvelous! I'll give it a try.
