Today's question is:
If you could have dinner with your favorite book character, who would you eat with and what would you serve?
Well....I'm thinking of two book characters right now: Edward Cullen and Edward Rochester...two Edwards! Both of them hot in their own individual ways!!
I'll go with Edward Cullen first, since he's my most recent heartthrob, and with the movie "Breaking Dawn: Part I" coming out next month and all, he's been on my mind quite a bit in recent days. I find him utterly fascinating, romantic, tender, and every thing a girl's (or woman's) heart could possibly desire! My favorite book in The Twilight Saga, by the way, is Twilight. It's also on my list of favorite books, period!
Now, since Edward is a vampire, there's no human food that I could possibly serve him, since it wouldn't be appetizing to him. However, I could instead engage him in a conversation about his favorite classical musicians, for example, since he plays the piano beautifully. I know he loves Debussy. He probably likes Chopin as well, and I wouldn't be surprised if he also loved Tchaikovsky and other Romantic composers. Or I might ask him about his favorite 19th-century British writers. He and Bella seem to like Wuthering Heights. I would explain why I don't like that particular writer, and ask him to tell me why he does. We could go on to discuss Austen, Dickens, Thackeray, the Romantic poets Byron and Keats, and the other Bronte sister -- Charlotte.
I would also offer him some fine red wine. I've discovered that's something most vampires seem to enjoy drinking (for obvious reasons). Since Edward, of course, has excellent taste, I would offer him an award-winning wine from Wiederkehr Wine Cellars, such as a Merlot, Shiraz, or Burgundy.
My other literary crush is Edward Rochester, from my other all-time favorite book, Jane Eyre. He's a brooding, moody character, but passionately romantic at the same time. However, he needs to be, shall we say, domesticated a little bit? So I would serve him breakfast instead of dinner. Besides, the night before, we would have dined at the elegant soiree held at the home of one of his friends. This would be the...ahem...morning after...
I think this Edward, being a red-blooded human being, would enjoy a typical English breakfast. He is, after all, an Englishman. The breakfast would look somewhat along these lines:
Admittedly, this is a modern English breakfast. I would say, though, that the menu hasn't changed all that much since dear old Edward trod the well-appointed rooms of the venerable Thornfield Hall!
