I just came across a mention of this food-related novel: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594484880/ref=as_li_ss_tl?...

It was described as "a collection of 16 interrelated stories, each named after (and starring) a certain kind of food."

The chapters are:
Red Sea Salt
Hot Dog
Muffins
Orangina
Bean Curd [This is tofu, no?]
The Icing on the Cake
The Soup
Osetra
Crème Brûlée
Expresso
Menudo
Cholent
Boudin
Hot Pot
Belons
Margaret

I never heard of several of these. Wikipedia tells me that Osetra is caviar, and Boudin is sausage.

Wikipedia never heard of Hot Pot or Belons, but a quick google search indicates the former is a Chinese version of fondue, and the latter refers to Oysters.

I'm pretty sure there's no food item called Margaret, so maybe the description I saw was off a bit.
