This morning I decided to play Book Spine Poetry but handicap myself by choosing only food fiction or food fact books. There’s a collection spilling around the kitchen; I thought it would be easy. But turns out a shelf of titles starting with “The” and ending in “Cookbook” is a bit limiting, and try as I might I couldn’t figure out how to put “The Widow Cliquot” together with “A Goose In Toulouse” and “The Nasty Bits” without cheating. Check it out – here’s what I came up with.
Anthony Bourdain, Padma Lakshmi, and Susan Orlean all agree that “The Hundred-Foot Journey” is an excellent novel, and they’re right, I might have missed it, though, keep reading to find out why.
My new motto: eat bravely. Channeling Anthony Bourdain results in an impulse purchase of parking lot tamales.
Wisdom, not just recipes, can be found in the Joy of Cooking.
