Hi folks!

One of the less populated shelves on my Goodreads account is "foodie." Cookbooks, books about cooks, books about food and drink, books that include a recipe for something or other, that sort of thing. So the list of books Goodreads recommends to me based on it is rather short. On the other hand, it's a very different selection from my other shelves.

Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant: Confessions of Cooking for One and Eating Alone by Jenni Ferrari-Adler
Appetite for Life: The Biography of Julia Child by Noel Riley Fitch
The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen by Jacques Pepin

In related news, I'm currently reading a book about energy drinks. Oh and the book "Frances Elizabeth Willis" I reviewed recently at my blog had a surprise guest appearance by Julia Child.

Let me know if you've read any of these, or heard any interesting buzz. Or failing that, just plug your favorite book about food.
