2016 CHALLENGE: Foodies Read

Heather at Based on a True Story has taken over hosting the Foodies Read Challenge for 2016. Margot from Joyfully Retired started this popular challenge and then passed the torch to Vicki from I'd Rather Be at the Beach.

This is always one of my favorite challenges. I'm signing up  again this year for the Pastry Chef level to read four to eight food books in 2016.


Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz

A Little Dinner Before the Play by Agnes Jekyll (reviewed here)

I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections by Nora Ephron

Stuffed: Adventures of a Restaurant Family by Patricia Volk

Shaken and Stirred by William Hamilton


There are several possibilities on my TBR shelves, including:

Jam Today Too: The Revolution Will Not Be Catered by Tod Davies

French Country Cooking by Elizabeth David (or at least one by her)

Spotted Dick S'il Vous Plait: An English Restaurant in France by Tom Higgins

Two Towns in Provence by M.F.K. Fisher

My Kitchen Wars by Betty Fussell



  1. I signed up for this challenge too. I better get busy!!

  2. I stopped doing challenges, but I always loved this one. You have some great choices on your list. I really need to read or listen to Dearie ... bad me for not having done so yet.

  3. I like your list. I started Dearie but never finished it.

  4. I love this challenge but quit signing up for it because I was terrible about actually keeping up with it. I'm curious about Dearie. I didn't love Julia in My Life in France but I'd like to give her another chance.

  5. Obviously, I love this challenge too. I'm so glad it's still moving ahead. I took a couple years off (normal burn-out), but I'm back at it this year. Hard to stop reading good food books. I love your list of possibilities. Most of them are new to me. Good luck to you.
