Namely, fruit.

Cobb Salad

This morning on the radio they were discussing all the different types of foods named after people. For example, the sandwich named after the Earl of Sandwich, the Cobb Salad named after Robert Howard Cobb (debatable according to Curb Your Enthusiasm haha) and so forth. One of the radio hosts has his own ice cream flavor at a local creamery made up of chocolate ice cream and the oreo-like crunchies from ice cream cakes…a WINNING combination, let me tell you.

This whole discussion got me thinking…if a food was named after me, what would it be?

Well, lately, I’ve been obsessively craving the following salad that I highly recommend:

It’s simple, but a delicious mix that hits the spot every time that I would LOVE to call the “Caroline”, but it probably already has a name as I’ve had it in several restaurants.
What food [sandwich, dish, combination] would you name after yourself??

As a writing exercise, describe your favorite food. Even better, write about a food that you loved as a kid and what that food reminds you of today. The smells of apple pie in your aunt’s house; the taste of freshly whipped cream as you licked it off your stubby little fingers. Food can reveal so much to us about the place, time, and even class of our characters in fiction that it should be used as effectively as can be to not only make our readers drool, but also understand that much more about our characters.
