A Curated Selection of Succulent Novels



1. Breakfast at Tiffany's

What’s the best way to start your day? Obviously indulging in a heartwarming breakfast can be one option. You can always pull a Holly Golightly and have your breakfast staring in front of the window of your favourite shop. Although in the novella ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote, Holly Golightly’s preferred breakfast food is not mentioned, in the feature film, Audrey Hepburn, who plays the protagonist opens up the movie with a Danish pastry and coffee in hand. An ideal breakfast for me would be indulging in this short novella and munching on Neriku’s assorted finger sandwiches, pastries, scones and a cup of tea.


2. Eat, Pray, Love

For lunch, why not satisfy your belly with a tasty plate of pasta? Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ details how Gilbert found respect for herself through her love of Italian food. Jet setting from one meal or ice-cream to another, Gilbert repeatedly mentions how food is the source of contentment. This memoir is a great reminder that we can have a positive relationship with food and that food can fulfill us is many different ways. The perfect combination while reading ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, is Neriku’s mouthwatering arancini filled with ragout.


3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Let’s not forget our inner child. We all have a loving relationship with Dahl’s infamous novel ‘Charlie and the Chocolate factory’. This novel presents a childhood dream that comes to life when Charlie wins his golden ticket to the factory. Not only is the factory the haven for all chocoholics, but it is also for anyone who has a sweet tooth. If only there’s a golden ticket to visit the Neriku factories while they are making their delicious cakes. If only I could get a piece of their Kinder cake, Maltesers cake, Bounty cake…


4. To Kill a Mockingbird

It is often said that food brings people together and there’s nothing more pleasant when this happens. The black community in Harper Lee’s novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ gift Atticus Finch food to thank him for defending, Tom Robinson, a wrongly accused man. The food-giving scene evokes strong feelings within one’s community and a sense of belonging which most times we take for granted. This novel sets the perfect mood for calling your family and friends over to indulge on one of Neriku’s BBQ menus. It is a great opportunity to be grateful for your loved ones.  


5. The Wedding Date

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Can you hear the church bells ringing? ‘The Wedding Date’ by Jasmine Guillory is a brilliant fun wedding novel. Alexa and Drew meet in a lift when there’s a power cut and Drew asks Alexa to be his guest at his ex’s wedding. Alexa doesn’t turn down this proposal and this proposition takes Alexa and Drew on a completely new journey. Having to battle out a long-distance relationship, who knows what’s in store for these loved up protagonists? Nothing better than one of Neriku’s prime wedding menus with careful attention to detail.
