If you missed the notice on our homepage (in which case, you may have missed other interesting stuff, so do have a look at the "What's New, Chowhound?" entries in the center)......
We've massively updated and reorganized our Recommended ChowBooks page, adding over 70 titles. If you enjoyed the great threads where everyone recommended favorite food books/essays/writings over the past few weeks, you'll be glad to know that we've included all that stuff (no need to plow through the thread!), and included blurbs from the hounds who recommended them.
Take a look via the link below (and order liberally via the Amazon ordering link included for each title...we get a commission, which helps the site keep going!).
Oh, and a big Chowhound thank you once again to Melissa Garland, who helped cull the information.
