I don’t see it. They’re both pretty faces. (Aside from the animals that were tested on/made into ingredients, which makes the über-eyebrows pretty icky.)

Fiction/Food Mash Ups - or Good Reads/Good Eats

What could be better than a good soup than a good soup eaten with a great book?

There’s an African proverb - A good soup attracts chairs.

That in mind, I’d offer this: a good novel about Nigeria , Cutting for Stone

caused a really good soup in the form of Nigerian Peanut Soup from Vegan Fire & Spice, by Robin Robertson. Ms. Robertson’s recipes have yet to let me down.

Little Bee generated a W’et modified from Sundays at Moosewood that is sure to be repeated. My substitutions included removing the Niter Kebbeh (duh!) and replacing the peas with okra.

And this week’s novel, an autographed copy of Stealing the Dragon has me craving Chinese food ala China Town in San Francisco.

Again I reach for Robertson’s cookbooks - and Vegan on the Cheap gives up Dan Dan-Style Linguine @ under $2.00 per serving, and Mu Shu Burritos for under $1.50 per serving. Should it take me more than a week, I can whip up Quick Lo Mein for <$2 bucks.

Coming soon are books with backdrops in the Middle East, Thailand, and Hawaii. I’ll be mashing up the fiction with the food for a really good read and feed.
