Cooking, Eating, Reading

Cooking, eating, and reading are three of my favorite things. So reading books about cooking and eating is obviously one of my favorite things too. Here are some great food reads:

Tender at the bone by Ruth Reichl. I’ve read all of her books and this one is my favorite.

My life in France by Julia Child. I just finished reading this one. It’s totally charming.

Untangling my chopsticks by Victoria Abbott Riccardi. I found this in the bargain bin at my neighborhood bookstore and loved it. An American woman lives in Kyoto for a year and studies Japanese food. A delight!

The Language of Baklava by Diana Abu-Jaber. A coming of age memoir about an American/Jordanian family and the food that unites them. Also charming.

And my all time favorite food author?

Laurie Colwin, hands down. Her two books, Home Cooking and More Home Cooking are simply the best. Her writing is funny and delicious. It is true comfort food reading.

And last but not least, my favorite food magazine is Gourmet. I love the photos, the articles, and of course the recipes, which make up most of our dinners. I’m not sure I could live without it every month.
