Foodie's Reading Challenge for 2011

I like to read cookbooks. Reading recipes is often times just as creatively satisfying as preparing them. So, it isn't surprising when I tell you that I also like to read stories and memoirs that revolve around food. Uh-huh. What better reading challenge for this joyous aspect of reading then the...wait for it... Foodie's Reading Challenge hosted by Margot who blogs Joyfully Retired.

Like most reading challenges, participants choose their own goals. The Foodie's Reading Challenge has five levels—Nibbler, Bon Vivant, Epicurean, Gourmet, and Glutton. For more details about this challenge, head over to here.

My goal is to complete the Bon Vivant level. These are the books I hope to read for the challenge.  Yes, indeed, they are part of my list of 70. For those of you who are new to me, you can click here for my personal reading throw down.
Glazed Murder: A Donut Shop Mystery by Jessica Beck
Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain
My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
The Kitchen God's Wife by Amy Tan
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes


  1. My son loves Kitchen Confidential. I think he's got a little man-crush on the badass Anthony Bourdain. He quotes long passages from memory.

  2. Bybee, it does sound like some kind of crush. Whole passages, wow!
