The All Souls Real-Time Reading Companion
1 October, Chapter 12 :
What do you make if a vampire is coming to dinner? While Matthew spent most of the day wondering what would happen later when he was alone with Diana (if you are wondering what I thought might be going through his romantic brain during these long hours, listen to The Spill Canvas’s ‘The Night Will Go As Follows’. It will make you smile.), Diana was shopping and worrying about what to feed this new friend of hers.
Dating a vampire would be a challenge. A huge challenge. Because food is a major way for warmbloods to share, get to know each other, and socialize. There had to be ‘something’ for Diana and Matthew to share besides mutual passion, which is why there is such an emphasis on wine as something they can at least converse about over the dinner table.
But of course, as Matthew points out, he ‘can’ and does eat. And bless Diana: she tried to come up with a vampire appropriate meal – which meant I had to do so, as well. All of the recipes are on the web in one form or another, but this dish for rabbit and chestnut cakes struck me as a winner straight away. It’s based on a traditional Tuscan dish. Olives and garlic are optional if you are serving it to vampires. I imagine it would be quite good with little, butterflied Cornish game hens if you don’t want to go down the rabbit route, or even some chicken pieces – though of course if you are cooking poultry be careful to cook it properly.
