Foodie Reads: On My Bookshelf

Just wanted to share the next four picks for one of my very favorite cooking groups: Cook the Books. Books + Cooking. You know I can't pass that up. Thankfully it's a bi-monthly foodie book club so I can relax a bit in case I'm having a busy month. I've included amazon links to the books in case you want to join the fun.*

Rachel of The Crispy Cook posted her invitation to the December-January pick - Sustenance and Desire: A Food Lover's Anthology of Sensuality and Humor by Bascove. Deadline is February 2nd.

Deb of Kahakai Kitchen selected our February-March selection. Comfort Me With Apples: More Adventures at the Table by Ruth Reichl. Deadline is March 30th.

Debra of Eliots Eats chose our April-May book - The Feast Nearby: How I lost my job, buried a marriage, and found my way by keeping chickens, foraging, preserving, bartering, and eating locally (all on $40 a week) by Robin Mather. Deadline is June 1st.

Our June-July 2015 book will be hosted by Simona of Briciole. The Wedding Bees: A Novel of Honey, Love, and Manners by Sarah-Kate Lynch. Deadline is August 3rd.

This will definitely keep me busy for awhile. I hope you'll join us for some great reading, cooking and community. Everyone is welcome to join in. The only requirement to join in the Cook the Books fun is to read the book and blog about it, including making a dish inspired by its pages.

  1. I am currently reading sustenance and desire albeit slowly. I, too, am glad that it is a bimonthly club.

  2. Working on Bascove's, too, Wendy and Camilla. Am loving it and finding LOTS of inspiration. Time will fly and it will be time to post up soon!
