Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own Prepare your senses for a feast of delicious food scenes in literature accompanied with recipes to bring them to life in your very own kitchen, including Turkish delight Edmund wouldn't be able to resist, roast goose the Cratchits would be proud of and cucumber sandwiches Algernon would be loath to share.

'[a] neat little book... it's a curious read and might come in handy if you're hosting a book club meeting. Anna Karenina's mushroom pate, anyone' Waitrose Weekend
