    I didn’t remember the title and author…but when I saw the cover art on Amazon–YES, I read this in the library!

    Great to hear the background and endorsement of the d’Aulaire books. My whole family loves them! I highly recommend them to kids who are fans of Rick Riordan’s Greek-based series.

    The D’Aulaire’s Greek Myth book was the one I remember using in grade school when we studied mythology. Interesting, I don’t remember ever covering Norse myths — Greek, Roman and Egyptian mostly.

    The Anne McCaffrey cookbooks mentioned are Serve it Forth and Cooking Out of this World. They were released by Wildside Press in the 1990s. Also suggest food manga if you like salivating over things you’ll never eat/drink: Viz published 7 volumes of Oishinbo A La Carte and available digitally. Vertical published four volumes of Drops of God on wine.

    I held the record for checking the D’Aulaire’s book of Greek Mythology at the Tuscaloosa library for a long time. My mom was 37 when I was born and was raising me alone at 40. She didn’t know very many fairy tales, but she was taking a Greek Mythology class at the University while trying to finish her degree. So, I got Zeus and Hera and Hercules instead of Cinderella and Snow White. I went to kindergarten knowing who Perseus was and what he did. It probably warped me, but I kind of like who I am now, so it’s all good.

    What a fun segment on food in fiction! I love this topic and even organized a discussion panel about it for the recent “Life the Universe, & Everything” science fiction & fantasy symposium.
    I’m also a youth book blogger and over the past year or so have found my review posts leaning steadily toward the topic of food, insomuch that I finally embraced my passion and started an new site called “Food Adventures (in fiction!)” with recipes and photos for foods from books, video games, and movies/TV. Food in fiction is just such a happy thing!

    Thanks again for talking about food in fiction!
