Hot Topics-Winter Reading List

I didn't quite get through Food Tank's Fall Reading List and here we have their Winter Reading List.  It's a great time of year for reading however-too cold to garden, comforting to curl up with a quilt and a book, and reading is very budget friendly, as all those holiday bills are arriving.

Food Tank offers provocative recommended reads for foodies, farmers, and fact seekers-similar to the mission of this blog.  Beyond cookbooks, there is also history and motivation.  There are soul satisfying suggestions.

Next to my comfy chair is Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  No, I don't intend to try many of the recipes, but I read cookbooks for inspiration and ideas.  Her attention to detail in explaining things is both basic and overwhelming at the same time.  But I do love to read and write about food.

I also picked up An Omelette and a Glass of Wine by Elizabeth David at a thrift shop, reading about the French countryside, markets, and recipes.  It was like a mini trip to France each time I sat down to read.

Check the reading list for a topic of interest to you or for a new,unknown topic which might become of interest to you.  Be enriched.
