Literary Feasts: The Reluctant Widow, by Georgette Heyer


literary-feasts5I love reading about food in books.Β  I like to cook and I love to eat even more.Β  So on Friday’s I’ll be sharing the culinary delights that I have come across in my reading. What better way to start off the weekend than thinking about good food in a good book.

“Mrs. Cheviot and the Hon. Nicholas Carlyon dined very cosily together off
a neck of veal, stewed with rice, onions and peppercorns, followed by
pippin-tarts and some ramekins which moved Nicky to send a message to the
kitchen assuring Mrs. Barrow of
favourable treatment should she desire a post as cook up at the Hall.
” [118]

  1. I hadn’t heard of Heyer until recently, but now I’m seeing her everywhere!! I love reading about food also. πŸ™‚ I read a foodie memoir last year called Tender at the Bone that had my mouth watering the entire time!
