How does James Bond kill time in Berlin before attempting to kill a KGB sniper? In the short story “The Living Daylights”, we find out.
Borscht, the famous Eastern European beetroot-based soup, has the distinction of being mentioned in two James Bond films: The Living Daylights and GoldenEye.
Judging by events in The Living Daylights, Russian defectors have it pretty good when they come over to Britain. Take General Georgi Koskov. He's put up in a large country house, and he is given - by James Bond himself - a hamper full of goodies from Harrods.
James Bond may not eat remotely as much in the films as he does in the books, but food nevertheless plays a role in the films, typically as set dressing, and, in the case of The Living Daylights, appears in relative abundance.
