A few of Dinah Fried's "Fictitious Dishes"
Fried painstakingly creates meals from text, with a flair for styling
using interesting cutlery, tableware and props.

and salted pork cut up into little flakes: the whole enriched with butter, and plentifully seasoned with pepper and salt.

After I had left the skating rink I went to a drugstore and had a Swiss cheese sandwich and a malted milk.
