5.0 out of 5 stars A moveable feast!, 13 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Hemingway Cookbook (Hardcover)
Great fun! A tour of Hemingway's world through (and with) his food. The recipes are easy to make and delicious (the Lime Ice is divine!). The cookbook is greatly enhanced by pictures of Hemingway interspersed with thoughtful and insightful commentary on his life and its influence on his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true culinary and literary accomplishment., 4 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Hemingway Cookbook (Hardcover)
Mr. Boreth's vast knowledge and obvious love of the language of food shines through in this fantastic work. Nowhere else have I seen such a marriage of food and literature that makes all of one's senses tingle! This is an adventure for Hemingway fans-- it's not often one sits down and reads a cookbook cover to cover, and feels the combination of satisfaction and inspiration-- it sheds a new light on Hemingway and makes his fiction enjoyable on an entirely new level. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Culinary tour de force by an up-and-coming Hemingway scholar, 15 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Hemingway Cookbook (Hardcover)
Who would have thought to peer into Papa Hemingway's soul through his food and drink! Craig Boreth's detailed research and original analysis of how Hem's lust for culinary indulgence moulded the author's world view make The Hemingway Cookbook an important contribution to scholarship on the 20th-century literary giant. Even more, Boreth's witty writing style and accessible presentation of Papa's recipes make for a lively read and tasty fun in the kitchen. Make the mussels!

This review is from: Hemingway Cookbook (Hardcover)
Let's be honest, a diet of Hemingway's works and biographies can be a little heavy. This book is a delight : the author is obviously a real Hemingway buff . It's well-written, nicely produced and contains many excerpts which will have you re-visiting your favourite Hemingway books. The food ( and drink ) sound wonderful and I look forward to trying the recipes.

Full marks to Amazon for making this specialist book easily available in the UK !
