The Folio Book of Food and Drink
The Folio Book of Food and Drink is an anthology of culinary delights, stimulating appetites with literary extracts including Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth David and Nigel Slater. This collection – exclusive to Folio – features a mouthwatering introduction by food writer Jojo Tulloh, and a selection of cartoons and 19th-century illustrations.
From Aristophanes to Nigel Slater, from the disgusting to the delicious, and from the sober to the inebriate, this selection of comestible literature encompasses fiction and non-fiction, poetry, prose and drama.
A light, literary smorgasbord of delights, there is something here to tempt everyone, whether they crave a festive feast, a roadside picnic or a midnight snack. As well as extracts from food writers including Ken Hom, Julia Child and Anthony Bourdain, there are selections from Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, Jan Morris, Amy Tan and more – proving that life and literature always keep half an eye on the dining table.
