Sometimes, we read through a book, or play a video game, and the description of a particular food makes us want to pull up a chair and join the feast. I’m talking about Butterbeer, Lembas, Bowls of Brown, Turkish Delight, and Otter Hotroot Soup.
See? For most of those, I probably didn’t even need to tell you what book the dishes were from, because they’re that iconic.
But there are many, many more works of fiction that include wonderful descriptions of food. I’m enlisting your help to track down the best, most tasty sounding dishes from all of fiction, from Dune to The Iliad. And why stop there? Let’s include poetry, movies, video games, and any other foodstuffs that really stuck out.
So how about it? Do you have a favorite fictional food?
