"Please Sir, I want some more?!" No one can forget the immortalised words of a young Oliver Twist when he asked for another serving of gruel at the workhouse in Charles Dickens' celebrated novel.
And now thanks to Charles Roux we have yet more reasons to remember some more iconic dishes and moments in some of literature's greatest works captured in his creative series of photos forming: 'fictitious feats'.

Take a look at a few of the famous food scenes below and be whisked into a literary wonderland of your favourite characters and novels. Head to Roux's site for even more defining meals in literature.
