The taste of crime

If you've read Andrea Camilleri, Jean-Claude Izzo, Manuel Vázquez Montalbán or Giampiero Rigosi, you know that fictional police, private investigators and killers can eat well, sometimes even while on the job. Now readers can get in on the act, at least the eating part, thanks to Novel Food #3.

Your hosts, briciole and Champaign Taste, ask that you:

1. Prepare a dish of your choosing that has a connection to a published literary work (novel, novella, short story, memoir).

2. Post it on your blog by March 22, 2008.

3. Send an e-mail either to (webrina AT gmail DOT com) or (simosite AT mac DOT com) and include your name, blog name and blog address, and a permanent link to your post. Non-English submissions are welcomed. If possible, please include an introduction in English.

Visit the blogs for further details. And bon appétit.

Thank you so much Peter, for posting this and also for catching our mistake with the year, which should have been (and now is) 2008.

And also, that is an interesting graph.

You're welcome. I'd been interested in the event when I'd read previous references, although any contribution from me would probably be closer to Harry Hole or Kurt Wallander than to Salvo Montalbano.

The graph is from Claude Levi-Strauss, and it accompanied some interesting comments about ancient humans and culturally significant ways of preparing food. I found it on the Web when I was searching for a public-domain illustration to accompany my post, and I found it so interesting that I may look for Levi-Strauss' writing on the subject.
