Having touched on the subject of what the cast and crew ate while making the James Bond films with a post on the food served up during the filming of the car chase sequence in Thunderball, I thought I'd try to find out more about the catering for the other films.
James Bond diet doesn't consist entirely of gourmet dishes, rich sauces and Champagne. In 'For Your Eyes Only', Bond's on survival rations.
We know what Colombo likes to eat in For Your Eyes Only - pistachio nuts. What about in 'Risico', Ian Fleming's short story from which the character is taken?
At the end of For Your Eyes Only, we see Mrs Thatcher in her kitchen in the course of preparing a meal. What else do we see in the kitchen, and how representative was it of Margaret Thatcher's actual kitchen?
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
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.
The sandwich, that humble lunchtime stable, appears with surprising frequency in the James Bond adventures.
