Shakespeare in food tweets


In honour of the Bard's birthday (23 April), Twitter was, well, atwitter with the hashtag #ShakespeareFood, replacing parts of Shakespeare's best lines/play titles with something edible. Being lovers of all things literary and food-related, we jumped right in and asked you to tweet us your suggestions - and they were so good, we've collected our top ten here. Big round of applause for @HotBam and @CurvyWurdy - you cooked up tasty puns Shakespeare himself would have been proud of.

Think you could do better? Share your #Shakespearefood suggestions in the comments below, or tweet us @Stylistmagazine.
