Welcome Mona Ingram, Author of Forever Changed

When Shelley asked me to contribute a short piece to her But What Are They Eating?blog, my first reaction was that there were no memorable food scenes in Forever Changed. It’s a story about a woman who’s just been given a breast cancer diagnosis. Why would she care about food? And then I started to think about how…See More

Welcome Elizabeth Isaacs, Author of The Light of Asteria

Cultures normally develop because of beliefs. Some stem from religion (like the Native Americans belief that the Earth is the one true life source given to all by the Maker) while others focus on a societal structures (such as America’s central conviction of freedom).  And so when I first started creating the…See More

Welcome Leyla Kader Dahm, Author of Annabeth Neverending

Annabeth Prescott is a reincarnated teenager with an insatiable hunger for knowledge...and junk food.  One thing that's carried over from Annabeth's past life to the present is her sweet tooth. Perhaps because in ancient Egypt the threat of arranged marriage, forced incest, and black magic made things so very…See More

FoodFic Look at DAKOTA

Charlotte Brevik knows how to make a girl feel at home. The retired-nurse/sheriff’s wife fills Lola Wicks with chicken and dumplings swamped in peppery gravy, homemade bread, and creamy casserole of butterbeans she grew and canned herself. A hearty meal to warm a soul in a brutal climate, especially when that soul was…See More

Hi Shelley!

I just thought of a book that might interest you. Perhaps you've read it: Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. If you don't know it, it's not at all like the movie, it's a memoir of sorts, but it reads like good fiction. That book is loaded with food talk, and recipes if I recall correctly. I know I mentioned Pat Conroy to you in an earlier comment, but this one popped into my sieve-like pea brain this morning. Thought it might be worth passing on.

Oh, and Bill Buford's book Heat about training to be a chef in Mario Batali's restaurant is another good one--I think I put on weight while reading that one! I have a chef in my next novel, so I've been reading food related books--hence my blurting multiple titles at once!

Have a wonderful day!

Thank you for the friending, Shelley! You've made my day! :-)

And no, your pun wasn't too much, but then I love a good pun (yours made me laugh out loud, so how can that be bad?). And writing about food...mmm, I might bloat to a five-hundred pound land-monster if I was in that line of work--I refer to some of my favourite cookbooks as pornography, so there's a potential vice there ;-) Thank heavens there are brave gals like yourself acting as scribes on that oh-so-wonderful subject!

Have you discovered any of the Phaidon books about food? In case you don't know, if you sign up for their newsletters you get members only invites to killer sales. They make decadent books on art, photography, architecture, film, and food! I got one in the last sale called The Art of the Restaurateur by Nicholas Lander. It's all little stories about well-known chefs starting their restaurants. I've got to get a couple other books out of the way before I can bite into this one (how's that for too much on the pun scale? ;-) ). They make some of the most beautiful cookbooks, too. 

Drop me a line if you'd like to chat about food, books, or whatever!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Shelley, nice to meet you.

Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Shelley!

Am I reading right, that you have a blog about food in fiction? I love that! It makes me think of Pat Conroy's novels, how food plays such an important role in his fiction. I'm a foodie who doesn't eat meat, so food has become a major element in my fiction too. Looking forward to checking out your blog! :-)

Feel free to tell us about the books you loved, or the ones you didn't, start a discussion, post links to blogs, reviews, or articles that you think everyone needs to read--anything that fits your definition of literature goes, including song lyrics, poetry, film scripts, and plays! One caveat: this is not a self-promoting group; it is meant to champion the work of other writers, so we look forward to hearing what you think we need to read! Most important, please have fun!

I'm a bit new to the group moderator biz, so if you think I've overlooked something, let me know and I'll do my best to come through.

Glad to have you aboard!

Cheers!

Thank you for reaching out, Shelley. I've been considering deep-sixing She Writes for being too clickish, but maybe I'll give it another look.

Lovely to connect with you, Shelley. Thanks for reaching out!
