Event Announcement: Novel Food (21 Sept 2007)

Event announcement:
Novel Food

Lisa (Champaign Taste) and Simona (Briciole) have been reading Andrea Camilleri’s Montalbano novels. Apparently, the main character, Inspector Salvo Montalbano, not only solves crimes but has a passion for good food. (Hmm, reminds me of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolf….)

After discussing the books, Lisa and Simona decided to create and co-host an event that is centered around novel food. They wrote:

While reading, I found myself wanting to eat along with my hero. […] Then it occurred to me that, as a fan, [Simona] might also want to make something from one of the books, and we could both write about it. The idea took off from there.

Thus, we’re co-hosting a special event: “Novel Food.” If this idea appeals to you, please join us!

Here are the rules for the event:

  1. Prepare a dish of your choosing that has a connection to a novel.
  2. Post it on your blog by midnight [EDT] on September 21, 2007.

Too bad I am not really a fan of bread pudding! But the description of the Malvern pudding in The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields is so compelling, it almost makes me want to try making it!

Hmmm, I wonder if we can find any currants still. There were boxes and boxes of them a couple of weeks ago at the fruit market….
