December Literary Food Festival

December 15, 2010

My A.P. Lit. class held one of it's famous Literary Food Festivals this week. The rules are simple: the kids can bring in food, but there must be an allusion to a piece of literature--ANY piece of literature. Even kids' books count. Obviously, creativity is encouraged. Here are some of my favorite offerings from December's feast:

Jeff's Who Pudding, from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Very season appropriate. I'd love to give him credit for the extra effort he made 'wrapping' the Who Pudding, but I highly suspect the praise should go to his lovely mom, Karen. There were enough Who Puddings for everyone in the class, both chocolate and vanilla. For the record, Who Chocolate pudding gets a thumbs-up.

Sam's Sour Patch Kids, an homage to Jonathan Swift's, "A Modest Proposal." In case you are unfamiliar with it, Swift's essay is a satirical response to overpopulation and famine--just eat the children! Nothing like killing two birds with one stone. Sam's allusion made me laugh out loud.
Angel's branded cupcakes, an allusion to Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. Forbidden AND tasty!
