I ran out of questions I thought were interesting on the Big List I was working through, so I made up my own — and I asked my reading friends on fb which literary character(s) they’d invite for dinner, and what they’d serve. I’ve got three Literary Dinners in mind — only one would fit into my apartment at the moment. I’d have to find other space for the other two.
Dinner for me and three guests at my apartment:
Guests: Harriet Vane (Lady Peter Wimsey), Ginny Weasley Potter, and Bridget Jones.
Menu: Turkey Curry and Chocolate Mousse for afters.
The Friends of Narnia Dinner:
Guests: Digory, Polly, Peter, Susan (I’d invite her, though she might refuse), Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, and Jill
Menu: Beef Stew, red wine, with fruit sorbet and cheese for afters. No Turkish Delight allowed.
The Detective Club:
Guests: Peter Wimsey, Adam Dalgliesh, Alan Banks, Fiona Cameron, Rev. Clare Fergusson, and Amelia Peabody
Menu: Mystery Something. Possibly a Mystery Dinner with food that looks like something else. Mashed Potato sundae anyone?
Who would you invite for your dinner party? What would you serve?
