There's always something a bit special about hotel room service. Having checked into a Munich hotel ahead of her marriage to James Bond, Tracy di Vicenzo orders a feast of a meal
Ian Fleming was ahead of the curve when it came to food: his James Bond books described dishes and food items, such as spaghetti Bolognese, curry and avocados, that had yet to be incorporated into mainstream culinary habits. To that list we can add garlic bread.
No, this post isn't about the Daniel Craig caper that so impressed the producers of the Bond films, but, rather, about the cake that's mentioned in 'Quantum of Solace', one of the short stories in For Your Eyes Only
In John Gardner’s Role of Honour, James Bond enjoys what is described as almost a banquet: a Lombardy soup, salmon mousse, venison cooked with berries, wine, ham and lemon, and, to finish, a soufflé.
For a James Bond film, food plays an unusually prominent role in the climax of the film of Diamonds Are Forever.
We are treated to the rare sight of James Bond ordering dinner on screen in For Your Eyes Only. Dining with Kristatos at the casino in Corfu, he orders preveza prawns, savara salad and bourdeto.
In Thunderball (1961), before Commander Pedersen tucks into his slice of apple pie onboard the US Navy's submarine, the Manta, he enjoys a meal of Virginia ham with red-eye gravy.
Unlike James Bond, Commander Pedersen of the Manta, as featured in Thunderball, has a great appetite.
Something's not quite right about the quiche de cabinet that James Bond (Roger Moore) cooks in Stacey Sutton's kitchen in A View to a Kill.
As we approach Christmas, what better way to get into the spirit of the season than to watch On Her Majesty's Secret Service, accompanied by a glass of eggnog.
