And when I saw that the Huffington Post did a post about foods from children's books, it reminded me immediately of Roald Dahl and the crazy cookbooks based on his stories.
I owned both of these cookbooks once upon a time. I'd flip through the pages, giggling at the ridiculousness, but I'll admit that I never once made anything from them.
I kind of wish now that I still had these gems so I could make something with my sisters, yet in the hustle and bustle that is growing up, the books seem to have vanished. At least HuffPo has given me some new literary dishes to give a whirl (and they've thrown in some Roald Dahl-related treats too!):
|Harry Potter: Butterbeer|
|Alice in Wonderland: Jam-filled "Eat Me" Cupcakes|
|The Hunger Games: Lamb Stew with Dried Plums|
|James and the Giant Peach: Peach Juice|
|Oliver Twist: Gruel|
