The Great Gatsby remains a classic favorite among many. Through the novel, Fitzgerald proved his power over words by getting his readers extremely emotionally invested in Jay Gatsby, Daisy and their tragic love story.
Perhaps another reason that The Great Gatsby is popular today is because of the way it depicts the so-called ‘Roaring Twenties’, which marked the beginning of modern America. The Roaring Twenties involved luxury and revelry as described in an excerpt from the book –
“On buffet tables, garnished with glistening hors d’oeuvre, spiced baked hams crowded against salads of harlequin designs and pastry pigs and turkeys bewitched to a dark gold.”
This was a scene from one of Gatbsy’s parties; doesn’t it sound extravagate and oh so delicious? Today, we’re sharing a recipe for that spiced baked ham. With the Christmas season just around the corner there’s no better time to start experimenting with ham recipes; serve this with a side of potatoes for lunch or dinner.
