Foodies Read 2018

      No Comments on Foodies Read 2018

This year I read seven books for the Foodies Read linkup – a couple memoirs, a few pieces of food-related fiction, and Anthony Bourdain’s two graphic novels. A good mix, although I keep trying to incorporate cookbooks here somehow and failing to do so. Maybe this will be the year.

I enjoy the nudge to read more food writing and the chance to see what everyone else is reading, so I’ll be joining in again this year. Last year I read these titles:

  1. Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise by Ruth Reichl
  2. The Dinner by Herman Koch
  3. The Amateur Gourmet by Adam D. Roberts
  4. Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery
  5. Get Jiro! by Anthony Bourdain
  6. Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi by Anthony Bourdain
  7. The Vintage Caper by Peter Mayle

I will be aiming for about eight books again, with these as my tentative choices:

  1. How To Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food by Nigella Lawson
  2. A Cook’s Tour by Anthony Bourdain
  3. The Gastronomical Me by M.F.K. Fisher
  4. Encore Provence by Peter Mayle
  5. A Girl and Her Pig: Recipes and Stories by April Bloomfield
  6. Feast of Sorrow by Crystal King
  7. Blood, Bones & Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton
  8. 32 Yolks by Eric Ripert

These will change wildly throughout the year, but it’s a start.
