Books About Food (memoirs and the like--NOT COOKBOOKS): Favorites & Recommendations

theoreticalphenogroup14 | Dec 15, 2010 09:24 PM

I've recently completed the irreverent memoir Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain, and I'm eager to read other memoirs of this genre. What I liked most about Bourdain's book, in addition to the high quality of writing, was his sense of humor combined with a professional's respect for food and for many of his colleagues (e.g., Ripert). Bourdain has the writing talents of a polished storyteller, as many of you know. I intend to read other books by him, if recommended, and I seek, as well, books by other chefs, critics, and the like. I am a serious "foodie", not a snob, but seeking reading material about food and related topics of only the highest quality. Thank you for any replies.
