Two More Holiday Books: Both for the “Foodie”
On Wednesday I posted on “What I Read Over the Holidays” but I also received two great gift books over the holidays as well, clearly selected for “Foodie Me.”
The first one was under the tree on Christmas morning and is Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz (Knopf, 2012.) It’s an impressive looking book and I loved the film Julie: Julia so am going to be very interested to see if my interest in food and in Julia Child will see me through the 529 pages, given biography is generally not my vein of reading gold.
The second book was a New Year’s gift: A global feast: traditional meals in a new homeland by Afife Skafi Harris & Beryl Lee (Otago University Press, 2012.)
This is a recipe book in which immigrant New Zealanders from 26 different cultures showcase their culinary traditions. It looks wonderful—as well as being simply a fabulous idea—and I am looking forward to studying it in more detail and giving some of the recipes a try.
How about you-all? Any favourite foodie books you’d like to share your enthusiasm for here?
