"A deliciously delightful anthology highlighting the world of food from a variety of sources including novels, recipe books, children’s stories, and poetry."
Stuffed full to overflowing with gorgeous extracts highlighting food, this would make a truly scrumptious present. In the introduction Jane McMorland Hunter says: “I have included very few recipes… as I wanted to create a book which would appeal to the imagination as much as whetting the appetite”. She goes on to explain: “These pieces are take from a variety of sources: recipe books, novels, prose, poetry, and fondly remembered stories from my childhood”. Each month features a delicious morsel or feast, with To a Haggis by Robert Burns of course appearing in January, and rather delightfully A Little Something from Winnie-the-Pooh by A A Milne sits happily on the page next door. There was much to welcome back into my thoughts with a hug, while introductions and further exploration will be needed with others. Some readers will want to dip in and out, this time I found huge pleasure in exploring in order, just to see who, or what was joining us at the table. There was much to make me smile, at times I smirked in agreement (How to Eat Ice Cream), while at others I laughed out loud (Drinking Song). This fabulous companion joins our LoveReading Star Books as it really would make a perfect present for lovers of food and the written word. An abundance of beautiful, witty, fun, and eloquent writing ensures the Bedside Companion for Food Lovers is a deliciously wonderful anthology.
