Special Edition: Announcing Novel Food #16
What are you reading now? I am reading A Mind to Murder by P.D. James, the second of the Adam Dalgliesh novels. I read the first one Cover Her Face and liked it a lot, so now I am on to the second one. "In 1962 P.D. James' first novel, Cover Her Face, was published. In that novel she introduced the sensitive, taciturn, and hardworking Inspector Adam Dalgliesh" (source). Basically, I added Inspector Dalgliesh to the list of interesting mystery novel characters I am already fond of, starting, of course, with Inspector Salvo Montalbano. (As a side note, Montalbano fans may want to check out this post by Peter of Detective Beyond Borders.)
As you can imagine based on the logo on the left, today I am announcing a new edition of Novel Food, the culinary/literary event that Lisa of Champaign Taste and I started in the fall of 2007. I am now carrying the torch. I am a bookworm and this event is really close to my heart as it brings together two of my passions.
Every edition of Novel Food is a little voyage of literary discovery, as you learn about literary works new to you, and it is also a delightful banquet made up of the literary-inspired dishes contributed by the event's participants.
I hope you will join the party. I am looking forward to learning about a published literary work (a novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio, poem, etc.) that provided you with culinary inspiration.
Here are the simple rules for participating in Novel Food:
- Prepare a dish of your choosing that has a connection to a published literary work (novel, novella, short story, memoir, bio, poem).
- Publish a post about it on your blog by the end of Sunday July 1, 2012 (midnight, Pacific Time), referencing the Novel Food event. Include a link to this announcement. If you wish, you can use the Novel Food logo.
- Send an e-mail to simosite AT mac DOT com and include your name, blog name and blog address, and a permanent link to your post. Please, include the words "Novel Food" in the email subject, so I can more easily retrieve the message in my inbox.
- Non-English submissions are fine. If possible, include an introduction in English.
If you don't have a blog, send me an email telling us about the dish, the literary work that inspired it, and, if you have it, a picture of what you made: I will add it to the roundup as well.
Note #1: If you don't receive an answer to your email or a comment on your post within two days of sending me the email, please contact me again: sometimes email messages get lost in cyberspace.
Note #2: If you follow this link, you will be able to browse my portion of the roundup of all previous editions. In relevant posts, you will find a link to Lisa's portion of the roundup.
