So for this week's Top 5, we're asking: what's your favorite fictional meal scene? Our Lady Scribes joined readers from my Preternatura blog and from Facebook this week, and here are the winners so far--but you have to chime in as well, for a chance at a $5 Amazon GC (or Book Depo equivalent). Also, read on for last week's winner!
The question: What's the most memorable scene you recall from a book that involves cooking or eating a meal? We had a couple of good answers that didn't make the top five--the chewing gum scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was author Samantha Grace's favorite ("You could experience a full meal with one gum," she says--"'You're turning scarlet, Scarlet!'"). Also, the chef competition from Rex Stout's Too Many Cooks.
But there was a Top 5. In order of the number of mentions...
Any meal at Hogwarts, in JK Rowling's Harry Potter series. Pumpkin juice for everyone!
And congrats to VAMPEDCHIK for winning the gift card for commenting on last week's High 5, favorite storm scenes. Please email me at this link with your email address.
Now, for this week's prize, what's your favorite meal scene? It might be one of these, or it might be different!
