Food quiz

1. Who was, "Going to give up eating (except for pie, because [he liked] pie)"?

2. Who, "When he began to eat pie, [ ... ] wished he had eaten nothing else. He ate a piece of pumpkin pie and a piece of custard pie, and he ate almost a piece of vinegar pie. He tried a piece of mince pie, but could not finish it. He just couldn’t do it. There were berry pies and cream pies and vinegar pies and raisin pies, but he could not eat any more."

3. Who was faced with this table?
"Such heaped up platters of cakes of various and almost indescribable kinds, known only to experienced Dutch housewives! There was the doughty doughnut, the tender oly koek, and the crisp and crumbling cruller; sweet cakes and short cakes, ginger cakes and honey cakes, and the whole family of cakes. And then there were apple pies, and peach pies, and pumpkin pies; besides slices of ham and smoked beef; and moreover delectable dishes of preserved plums, and peaches, and pears, and quinces; not to mention broiled shad and roasted chickens; together with bowls of milk and cream, all mingled higgledy-piggledy, pretty much as I have enumerated them, with the motherly teapot sending up its clouds of vapor from the midst."

Yesterday afternoon was rather incredibly frustrating, due chiefly to being locked in a car park, and having to make our way back home by foot*, bus, a long wait at Temple Meads and train. But it did have one consolation - a name-check on Test Match Special :-) I sent them an email just before we left the house, got in the car, turned the radio on, tuned to 198 metres, and almost the first words they mentioned were my name!

*Despite my twisted ankle.

Harry Potter fans - and, for a moment a few minutes in, especially slash fans - should listen to this week's (ie Monday 27 October's) "Write Stuff" literary quiz from radio 4.
