007 Food: Caviar, whisky, roast duck with pomegranate seeds and herb saladDecember 27, 2020
Food: Caviar, whisky, roast duck with pomegranate seeds and herb salad. Bond eats this kind of meal at Hotel Jalal’s Five Star in Noshahr, Persia (nowadays Iran).
Bond book appearance: Devil May Care (2008).
Experience of 007 Travelers: Self-made
The caviar was brought in a casket, whose lid was taken off to reveal an inner glass bowl set on ice. Hamid’s eyes were bulging as he scooped out a large helping on to his plate and started to lever it into his mouth, using a piece of flatbread as a trowel. To Bond’s dismay, he drank Coca-Cola with it. Bond had switched to whisky, and Scarlett, since the hotel had no other wine, drank champagne.
The waiter brought roast duck with pomegranate seeds and served it to them with a herb salad that looked past its best.
