  1. What a great idea for a theme. There are 2 books I can think of where the meals described are frankly disgusting. One was The Gourmand by Muriel Barbery and the other was The Sea The Sea by Irish Murdoch.

  2. I haven’t read any of these yet, but one of the most memorable books I’ve read featuring amazing descriptions of food is Where the Wild Cherries Grow by Laura Madeline. It made me so hungry! 😉 Great choice this week. ❤
