LICENSE TO COOK

The James Bond stories are filled with wonderful descriptions of food. More than any other sensual experience, Fleming gave his literary hero a thirst and hunger befitting a man whose every meal could be his last. Blog author (and archaeologist) Edward Biddulph has published a new book that focuses on the 007 menu called License To Cook. From the press release: "You know what James Bond drinks, but do you know what he eats? What is his favourite food? What is his favourite meal of the day? How does he like his steak? How does he take his coffee? This cookbook is full of exciting recipes inspired by the food described in Ian Fleming’s novels. The recipes, devised by the author, are modern, but have a period twist. The cookbook is intended for anyone who wishes to recreate the flavour of James Bond’s gastronomy. If you’re preparing a romantic meal for two or planning a Bond-themed party, or if you’re simply curious about the sorts of food Bond eats, this cookbook is for you. Eat like Bond throughout the day, breakfast, lunch and dinner." Only $8.09 here. Our man Biddulph runs the stylish James Bond Memes site here and has contributed to MI6 Confidential and other print and internet publications. Thank you to our sister site Illustrated 007 for putting this on the radar!
