Margot at Joyfully Retired hosted one of my favorite challenges in 2011: The Foodie's Reading Challenge! I am looking forward to the 2012 Foodies Read 2 Challenge.
I love reading books about food. I often read cookbooks cover-to-cover, like a narrative book. I had a lot of fun reading the books for this challenge.
I signed up at the "Bon Vivant" level to read four to six books. I stuck with books already on my TBR shelves.
The Food of France by Waverley Root (reviewed here)
American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields, Rowan Jacobsen (reviewed here)
Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal: War Stories From the Local Food Front by Joel Salatin (reviewed here)
The Onmivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan (which I didn't review, but discussed here)
With a Jug of Wine: An Unusual Collection of Cooking Recipes by Morrison Wood (reviewed here, with a recipe)
James Beard on Food Delights and Prejudices by James Beard (reviewed here, with a recipe)
