Maybe it’s because I majored in English, but I was excited yesterday when I came across the Independent‘s excerpts from The Household Tips of the Great Writers by Mark Crick, which imagines how various authors would write recipes: clafoutis by Virginia Woolf, an onion tart from Chaucer, lamb with dill sauce from Raymond Chandler. It helped, of course, that they came up with a great headline: “Reader, I marinated it.”
