Food + Books = ♥

My first vivid memory of the intersection of literary and gustatory sensibilities was my mother reading to me a children’s book about a precocious little girl who sneakily gobbles up a cherry pie with clotted cream in the pantry one day when she’s left at home alone. My mom and I spent the next few weeks dreaming about exactly how this pie would taste – cherry pie and clotted cream seemed so wonderfully exotic and whimsical back when I was a child growing up in Asia.

I’ve since gone on to read many many more books, and somehow I never seem to forget all the literary food moments I’ve encountered along the way – maybe because of the spontaneous evocation of senses they inspire.

See if you can match these foodie moments with the random selection of titles below! Contact me for the answers. Have fun!
