Default New Statesman -- literary recipe

Bill Greenwell and I managed to put it into the net in the Eric Cantona competition. The Henry Moore example indicates that a "literary recipe" need not deal with a figure from the world of literature. (The deadline date suggests that this leap year is going to set a new long-distance leaping record.)

An oldie. We’d like you to think up a literary recipe. Here’s one to inspire you from the 1950s: the Henry Moore Reclining Cake, with icing. “Ingredients: Small bag assorted antediluvian bones, 1/2 bag cement, 3 large-sized holes, Shells from seaside or similar, Essence of squeezed shapes, Mother. Method: Arrange shells and bones in attractive shape. Add cement and three cups water. Stir in holes slowly, one at a time . . . When mixture set, add Mother in reclining position . . .”
