The Imaginary Places Cookbook

Alberto Manguel

COOKBOOKS. TINTA DA CHINA, 2021. 176 PAGES

THE FIRST BOOK OF (LITERARY) RECIPES BY ALBERTO MANGUEL WITH ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS BY THE AUTHOR

This book has devil-lovers soup, dragon omelet, sorcerer's fingers, dinoburgers, and even a cocktail of fresh blood - all (very) edible. And, in addition to filling your belly, it is an invitation to sit at the table with your favorite characters, in the most remarkable imaginary places in literature. As he collects readings, Alberto Manguel has been experimenting and inventing recipes since his adolescence - here, he combines his two passions, in the certainty that from «an elaborate banquet in Atlantis to the simplest dinner on Robinson Crusoe's island, all the food (literature tell us) is, in its essence, a proof of our common humanity».
