Some of our most vivid memories of childhood reading come from scenes set at a table.

So, understandably, we were psyched to come across these links in our Internet wanderings.

Grab a snack and enjoy the fruits (ha!) of our labor!

Flavorwire, appropriately, rounds up 10 memorable food-related scenes. Contrary to the headline, though, they are not all mouth-watering .... 

Terri Giuliano Long went one step further, hosting a monthlong feature called Food in Fiction in which other authors and bloggers submitted their favorite gastronomical scenes.

Miss Maudie’s Lane cake (from “To Kill A Mockingbird”) and Proust’s madeleines didn’t make either of those collections, but each did garner its own article.

NPR went on a quest to learn more about the somewhat obscure cake, while the Guardian shared news that the madeleines originally started out as something else.

All of this food talk might be inspiring you to don an apron and chef’s hat.

If so, check out Food in Literature, an entire website devoted to re-creating fictional foods. QuirkBooks has a less-overwhelming post of 10 delicious dishes.

Instead of telling you how to make the treats, The Village Voice tells you where you can find them around New York City.

And finally, if you’d like to wash down all those goodies with a special beverage, Harlequin has launched its own line of wine. Cheers to that, and to the weekend!
