A Year of Food Books (not cookbooks)

Boudleaux | Mar 22, 2009 07:37 PM

I hope I'm putting this post in the right place. This year I'd like to read almost exclusively food-related books. I don't mean cookbooks, though I love to read those too. So I'm looking for some suggestions. Here's what I have on my list so far:

Cornbread Nation Vol. 1-4: The Best of Southern Food Writing
An Omelette and a Glass of Wine - Elizabeth David
Fried Chicken: An American Story - John T. Edge
Apple Pie: An American Story - John T. Edge
The Tummy Trilogy - Calvin Trillin
The Art of Eating - M.F.K. Fisher
My Life in France - Julia Child

Any suggestions for additions to this list? I've read most Bourdain and Ruhlman books. I've also read Heat by Bill Buford. I've just added Home Cooking: A Writer in the Kitchen by Laurie Colwin to my wish list. I seem to keep eyeing The Kitchen Diaries: A year in the Kitchen with Nigel Slater but it hasn't made it to my wish list for some reason.

Any thoughts and/or suggestions for me? Many thanks in advance.
