The breakfast that James Bond tucks into in the novel Dr No is the closest he gets in the books to a 'full English'.
I rediscovered a booklet of recipes that came with Tex's range of seasonings, One of the recipes caught my eye: 007 Jamaican Curry Mutton.
Rice and peas accompany the stuffed suckling-pig that James Bond imagines is being served at the Thunderbird hotel while he is hunting down Scaramanga in a mangrove swamp in the Jamaican-set The Man with the Golden Gun.
Roast suckling pig is mentioned twice in the James Bond novels. This recipe is inspired by an original Jamaican recipe dating to 1965, the year that The Man with the Golden Gun was published.
Back in October and November 2013, London's Dorchester Hotel was offering a 'Solo' breakfast in celebration of the publication of William Boyd's James Bond novel, Solo. The book begins with Bond eating breakfast at the hotel.
You Only Live Twice (1964) sees James Bond embedded in a Japanese fishing village. Bond's food here is simple home-cooked fare, with bean curd and rice being the staple diet.
We know that James Bond loves smoked salmon, and it comes as little surprise that he shares his taste of smoked salmon with his creator, Ian Fleming.
