What are your favorite food books?

I am currently savoring Julia Child's memoir "My Life in France" and I have found it so enchanting that I know I will want to devour more food-related reads when I finish it.  (I have been rationing the chapters; it is such a pleasure that I don't want to turn the last page for another couple weeks.)

When I'm out and about today I'm going to attempt to find a copy of Samuel Chamberlain's "Clementine in the Kitchen", which promises to be a delight.

And Laura Esquivel's luscious "Like Water for Chocolate" has long been a favorite of mine.

Aside from these titles, does anyone have a recommendation for me?

I'm hoping to compile a delicious spring reading list.  Help!  And thank you!


  1. Have you read A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg? It's a collection of stories and recipes and it is really lovely.

    Love your blog, by the way, looking foward to reading more!!

  2. Sarah, thanks for the recommendation! Haha, I follow Orangette online but totally forgot about her book...I will have to grab a copy of that one! I also bought Jonathan Safran Foer's "Eating Animals" today--should be interesting. I am looking forward to reading more from your blog!! :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'm glad you liked the Mint Oreo Truffles!! ♥- Katrina

  4. It's not food related, but Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is one of my new favorites.

  5. The sharper your knife, the less you cry by Kathleen Flinn. good read, good recipes.
    I loved, I lost, I made spaghetti : a memoir by Giulia Melucci. Nice blog :)
