Wake up to a big breakfast of Ichabod's Slapjacks, featured in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, or perhaps Innocent Sweet Bread, from Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye. Citing classic passages in fiction, this cookbook provides dozens of recipes for such fare as Mr. Casaubon's Chicken Noodle Soup (George Eliot's Middlemarch), Mrs. Leibowitz's Lentil-Vegetable Soup (Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt), a Carrot Pudding in Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, and Turkish Delight from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. Here too are recipes inspired by Charlotte Brontë, Fannie Flagg, Harper Lee, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.
