Fictitious Dishes

Fictitious Dishes: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

The thing about good writing is that it transports you in time and place. You can see, smell, and imagine without leaving the comfort of your house or your subway seat.  Ever read Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle? Have any desire to visit a meat factory after that?  I didn’t think so.

But following these written cues can be hard, especially if you’ve never experienced anything like it in real life. Seriously, how unfathomable is the ocean journey of Pi Patel in The Life of Pi for those of us who have never been stranded in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger?  Luckily for us, Fictitious Dishes changes all of that by bringing literature to life – or at least the meals.
