Good books with food as a key element?

exbarkeep | Nov 25, 2006 08:17 PM

I picked up a used copy of Bourdain's "A Cook's Tour" yesterday, and realised that I've read very few books relating to food. Have read "Kitchen Confidential", and even Tom Robbins' "Jitterbug Perfume" was great, with beets playing a key role. I've seen posts about films related to food, and the two that come to my mind first are "Big Night" and "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman".
Any recommendations for great books about food? Fiction or non-fiction, just so's they're well written and enjoyable reads. Thanks.
