Ten fictional Christmas feasts

Kate Young is the author of The Little Library Cookbook. At the Guardian she tagged ten fictional feasts for Christmas, including:
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, Agatha Christie

In The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, Hercule Poirot’s hosts have promised “an old-fashioned Christmas in the English countryside”. On Christmas Day, they provide oyster soup, two turkeys, crystallised fruits and ginger, mince pies and a plum pudding – with a ruby hidden in the centre. I will be spending Christmas night reading Christie, with a box of crystallised ginger beside me.
Read about another entry on the list.
