Foodie Reads Challenge

A few years ago I jumped into a reading challenge hosted by Heather at Based On A True Story. I had so much fun, I've been signing on every year. If you're local to me (Monterey Peninsula, California), be sure to check out the newly-opened The Friends of the Marina Library bookstore.

Food. Books. What's not to love?

I hope you'll enjoy following along. I will post the titles I've read, on this page, as well as linking to the monthly lists at Based On A True Story. You should gain some great titles to add to your own shelf - or use as gifts for your favorite foodie bookworm. Heather has five Foodie Read Challenge Levels...
  • Short-Order Cook: 1 to 3 books
  • Pastry Chef: 4 to 8 books
  • Sous-Chef: 9 to 13 books
  • Chef de Cuisine: 14 to 18
  • Cordon Bleu Chef: More than 19
She also says that you can opt for an a la carte option and just read a book about food anytime you can fit it in. But I like the accountability and a year-long goal. Any genre of book qualifies for the challenge if food is a major part of the plot; it can even be a cookbook! This makes it easy for me to embrace the challenge level of Cordon Bleu Chef. In all the years I've participated, I have logged over 30 books; I am going to try to do that again in 2019!

This year's links are below. You'll see my 2016, 2017, and 2018 links at this tab. I hope you'll be inspired to join the fun.
