Stocking Stuffers: Fictitious Dishes

If you're looking for a great addition to a literature lover's bookshelf, you can't go wrong with Fictitious Dishes. A collection of photographs by writer and designer Dinah Fried, the book takes food-centric passages from two centuries of classic literature and recreates them.

From Oliver Twist's watery porridge to the opulent confections of Madame Bovary, Fictitious Dishes brings to life some of literature's best loved (or, in the case of The Metamorphosis's trash heap, most iconic) meals.
