Nobody can deny that James Bond hasn't suffered in the course of his duties: in Thunderball, he's obliged to drink carrot juice.
We occasionally see James Bond pick up a restaurant menu in the films, but we are almost never permitted to see what's on it. An exception is Thunderball (1965), where, at the Café Martinique in Nassau, the camera lingers on the menu as Bond orders Beluga caviar.
Patricia Fearing saves James Bond twice when he's trapped on 'the rack' in Thunderball: first from the traction machine itself, the second time from the threat of dandelion tea.
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.
James Bond knows a thing or two about conchs. For one thing, they're reputed to be an aphrodisiac. For another, island people have conch chowder on their wedding night.
James Bond's diet at Shrublands health farm, as described in Thunderball, includes a mug of vegetable soup. The soup may be something like the potassium broth that Bond learns about while reading Nature Cure Explained by Alan Moyle.
In Thunderball, James Bond orders broiled chicken, disjointed and basted with creamery butter. Bond is disappointed with his lunch, but you can't go far wrong with this recipe.
