The food porn in Dinah Fried's book comes straight from the pages of works of fiction.

New York-based designer Dinah Fried drew inspiration for her recent book, Fictitious Dishes, from the pages of her favorite books. We’re all familiar with those literary scenes that are so vivid in describing a meal that we can practically taste it; Fried now brings fifty of these scenes to life in these delectable depictions.

The photographic interpretations are accompanied by the text from the work that inspired the creation, along with interesting facts and anecdotes about the author and his or her food preferences. Scenes range from the madcap tea party in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the spread at Gatsby’s infamous parties, to the bountiful chicken breakfast from To Kill A Mockingbird and Oliver Twist‘s pitiful gruel.
