Books About Food

I think this will be my last blog post for this month. After three solid weeks of writing, I’ve simply run out of things to say.

Also, I need to get back to some things I’ve been neglecting, such as reading, exercising, walking the dog, food shopping, house cleaning, and photography.

Oh, and going to bed at a decent hour.

So, for now, it’s sayonara … but before I go, since Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner, I want to leave you with some “food for thought,” as it were – a list of some of my favorite books about food. Some, like The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, are about much more than just food.

  1. Oh lovely! My favourite is ‘Much Depends on Dinner’ all about the history of the food we have on our table. I like your list, several of the books have been on my TBR for a while. I read and LOVED The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – wonderful to see it on your list 😀 I totally sympathise with you on needing to catch up with other life tasks. I too found that doing Nano this year has made me slack on work lol. You did so well, you should be proud 😀
