    1. I am not much of a cook, and I wonder whether that is the reason it was not clear to me what are the ingredients in Mark Crick s concoction Is it the chicken, the mushrooms, the rice and potatoes, the garlic and tarragon, or the lamb and the cherries that he lists as needed for his conceivable mixtures The R sti, the Onion Tart, or the Rich Chocolate Cake, as well as the Clafoutis Grandm re, all seem edible recipes Or is he stewing this array of menus out of writers of the stature of Mann, Chauc [...]



    2. A cookbook where the recipes are written in the style of famous writers roast lamb a la Raymond Chandler, coq au vin a la Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the title recipe, and so on What could have been gimmicky and overbearing is actually funny and readable Crick is better at imitating some styles than others chocolate cake a la Irvine Trainspotting Welch is rich and satisfying while scrambled eggs a la Jane Austen a bit overcooked but generally he makes it all work And no, I didn t try any of the reci [...]


    3. The book jacket calls Mark Crick a literary ventriloquist, and if that is a new genre, then he s a master of the art This is a nice little confection, to be enjoyed in delectable little bites, one at a time Sorry, I couldn t resist If you like to cook and you like to read, as I do, this is fun to dip into I m even tempted to try a couple of these recipes, just to see how they turn out Maybe Cherry Clafoutis Ala Virginia Woolf Or the John Steinbeck version of Mushroom Risotto Even Marcel Proust h [...]



    4. Najzabavniji kuvar Nisam neka kuvarica, ali ove recepte bih ak i ja probala Knjiga sadr i desetine recepata sa ilustracijama, a svaki je pisan u maniru razli itih pisaca Tu su Kafkini recepti u stilu Preobra aja i Procesa , Stajnbekovi vrganji u stilu Plodova gneva , Markiz de Sadov perverzni pristup vo u i so nom mesu.Markesov je mo da i najzabavniji jer u pri i je ispovednik koji se trudi da obezbedi osu eniku poslednju ve eru pred sutra nje pogubljenje, a osu enik, biv i kuvar, tra io je pevc [...]

    6. I was fascinated with the unusual format of this book, so I actually bought it and I seldom do that I think it takes a lot of talent to grasp the most important elements of different authors writing styles and incorporate them into short receipt stories Very unfortunately, of all the literary works imitated in this little book I only read The Iliad and an excerpt from Proust s In Search of Lost Time Perhaps that is the reason why I could connect with The Iliad remake easily and enjoyed it than [...]


    7. The Canadian American impressionist and comedian Rich Little was known as The Man of the Thousand Voices for his remarkably ability to impersonate the sound and manner of celebrities Perhaps even difficult is the ability to reproduce the writing style and voice of well known authors This latter sort of mimicry is the premise of Mark Crick s first book Kafka s Soup What if fourteen famous authors had each written a recipe in their characteristic style The recipes which are real include cheese on [...]


    8. I love the underlying concept of this book a sampler of fourteen literary and culinary pairings Each recipe is cleverly woven into a short essay, play or poem, written in the style of a particular author e.g Quick Miso Soup a la Franz Kafka I am fairly confident that I have successfully deciphered the basic recipe instructions however as a novice in the kitchen to put it nicely , I think I would find it difficult to execute many of them properly Perhaps I will try one of the simpler examples fir [...]


    9. What a clever book Crick, a literary ventriloquist, proffers 14 recipes, each written in the style of a major author The porcini lay dry and wrinkled, each slice twisted by thirst and the color of parched earth Steinbeck It is a truth universally acknowledged that eggs, kept for too long, go off The eggs of Oakley Farm had only recently been settled in the kitchen at Somercote, but already Mrs B was planning a meal Austen And so on Not all are spot on, but most are, making for an utterly delight [...]


    10. Pikkuhauskaa ja paikoin ihan n pp r teksti , jonka ideana on kirjoittaa reseptej maailmankirjallisuuden klassikoiden tyyleill Paikoin kirja osuu maaliin, mutta ei t st silti oikein ole kunnon lukukokemukseksi eik liioin reseptikirjaksi Sain t m n itse syntt rilahjaksi ja onhan se joskus ollut mieless , ett tekisin jonkun kirjan resepteist kuten kirjassa on kuvattu Uskaltaako joku tarjoutua kokeilemaan millaista olisi sy d kanssani lammasta Raymond Chandlerin tyyliin P.S Matille vinkiksi, ettet t [...]


    11. This is a very strange book This was given to me by my family for Mother s Day Fourteen recipes for various dishes, written in the form of various authors It helps to have read the authors real works The book lost its charm for me after the second story And I doubt I ll ever try out any of the recipes, though there were one or two that looked interesting.


    12. The concept could have been taken farther and been better organized either by genre or course, but still, I laughed really hard at the execution of the idea of famous authors writing recipes stories Raymond Chandler and Virginia Wolf were my favorite, both recipes spending a wonderful time lingering over the descriptions of the ingredients and the chief.


    13. This book took me an hour to read Literally get it, literally Ha It was a fair book to read on a summer y afternoon because I m a a food lover and b a book lover If you re neither of these things, don t bother If you are both, expect a light, trite bit of fun.


    14. Mark Crick B y k yazarlar a olsayd sorusundan hareketle yazd bu kitapta bize 14 tarif sunuyor k noktas n ok be endi im bu kitaptaki favorim ise Marquez usul Coq au Vin.Biraz daha uzun s rmesini istemekle birlikte olduk a keyifli okuma sundu u da bir ger ek.




    15. So clever Read it for a little pick me up, perfect for the bibliophile in your life, especially if that is you.


    16. Faites attention, car en refermant ce livre, j tais au bord de l indigestion Et pourtant, quel r gal que ce buffet bien garni _ Au menu, diff rents mets pr par s par de grands noms de la litt rature Nous passons de Jane Austen au Marquis de Sade, de Marcel Proust Virginia Woolf, et tant d autres.L auteur nous donne ici un livre totalement d cal , totalement diff rent de tout ce que j ai d j pu lire Il rentre dans la peau de chacun des personnages et nous pr sente ses recettes comme si c tait eux [...]


    17. D nce g zel ama daha ilgi ekici olabilirdi , Marcel Prost dan tramisu Kafka dan orba, yazarlar n tarzlar ile hafif alayc bir sluplar na bir g z at , yine de bir rp da okunabilir bir kitap.


    18. Clever little book By far the best was the very first recipe He took a recipe and an author and told a story in the vernacular that the author used.



    19. Interesting Made me want to read Harold Pinter And I did enjoy the stylistics As many before me have said very clever.



    20. A delightful, surprising and hilarious tour of world literature through the medium of the cook book Crick s mastery of his source material gives us note perfect renditions of some of the greatest authors, and I for one genuinely laughed aloud at least once in every recipe Crick approaches each writer knowledgeably and with respect these are pastiches, not spoofs.I made a project out of this little gem, and pledged to read the principal work of each of the authors that I hadn t yet read, so as to [...]


    21. Kafka s Soup is a cute little book which has been designed to celebrate 14 of the world s most famous writers The book contains real recipes written in a style that parodies the work of Raymond Chandler, Jane Austen, Franz Kafka, Irvine Welsh, Proust, Marquez, Steinbeck, Marquis de Sade, Woolf, Homer, Greene, Borges, Pinter and Chaucer Jane Austin gives us Tarragon Eggs, Marquez provides a magical Coq au Vin Homer cooks up Fenkata, and Graham Greene makes Vietnamese Chicken The work is assured, [...]


    22. Sedici ricette scritte ricalcando lo stile di altrettante opere letterarie Alcuni piatti, se non si conoscono i romanzi o gli autori di riferimento, possono risultare indigesti, ma per non rischiare di lasciarsi sfuggire qualche lieta sorpresa, magari nascosta in un ripieno o miscelata a una salsa, credo sia consigliabile concedersi almeno un assaggio di ogni capitoloDICE AGNELLO IN SALSA DI ANETOalla maniera di Raymond ChandlerUOVA AL DRAGONCELLOalla maniera di Jane AustenMOULES MARINI RESalla [...]


    23. A very fun concept, executed reasonably well Some of the authors voices were amenable to being turned to descriptions of cookery with comedic effect than others and or Crick was able to figure out how to do some than others I think it worked best when he was able to take it just a little over the top, but sometimes he started to fall down the other side In most cases, I was familiar with the author being pastiched, but not the exact work, which I think helped when I had read the particular wor [...]
