Chips make everything better.

IMG_4307Food plays an important part in Ivy’s world.  She loves Victorian Sponge cakes.  And obsesses over high tea at fancy hotel restaurants.

But her one true love definitely has to be fish and chips that are smothered in salt and malt vinegar.  It’s her favorite thing in the whole world.  I think if she could write sonnets to the perfect chip, she would.

How important to you as a writer is it to figure out your characters tastes and preferences? As a reader, does it matter to you at all?  I’m curious because to me, I love knowing some of the little personal food foibles that characters have.
