Indulging in a Food Quote
This morning I grabbed my copy of The Virago Book of Food from the bookcase and checked the index of authors for Elizabeth Taylor. It just so happened that the excerpt on offer is from Palladian. After a busy week at my house I am finally on the last few pages but I do remember the above-mentioned scene and feeling a bit stuffed just reading about all that food! You really get a sense of someone just going for it. Margaret's excuse is that she is pregnant and thinks about the next meal before the one in front of her is finished. But who hasn't been so hungry that they stand in front of the pantry or in the larder having a good go at everything that looks delicious and tempting? Standing in the pantry, bag of potato chips in hand, is my usual appetizer before most dinners.
Book Snob is hosting this month's title in a celebration of Elizabeth Taylor's centenary and I've just noticed she has a post up. No doubt she will be informative and entertaining as always, click here if you're interested!
