The béarnaise sauce that accompanies the 'steak on toast canapés', served on board the Queen Elizabeth in Diamonds are Forever (1956), has a hidden meaning.
If it's Wednesday, then steak and kidney pudding is on the menu in the Secret Service canteen. In The Man with the Golden Gun, this is the information that James Bond offers the Liaison Section to convince them of his identity.
Lobster salad is among the lunchtime buffet dishes about which James Bond fantasises while pursuing Scaramanga through a mangrove swamp in Jamaica in The Man with the Golden Gun.
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.
