I'm reading Martha Grimes' Emma Graham series (currently on Fadeaway Girl) and have been intrigued by some of the dishes described as being served at the hotel, especially Angel Pie and Ham Pinwheels. After some research, I've found Angel Pie to have an meringue crust, which sounds interesting. Has anyone had or made this?
Has anyone else been struck like this by descriptions of food in works of fiction? The feasts at Redwall Abbey in Brian Jacques' books have also whetted my appetite. What are your favorites?
