I have always been a fan of non-fiction, and I love to cook, so I’m delighted when I’m able to find a great new non-fiction book that also happens to be a food memoir! There have been so many lately that it might be hard to keep track of which you want to buy, and which you might want to let pass. I can help! Here’s my list of 7 great food memoirs!
1. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
Price: $10.13 at amazon.com
For one year, writer Barbara Kingsolver and her family decide to only eat what they can grow themselves or buy from neighbors. Each person is allowed one exception (I’d choose coffee for sure!), but aside from that, they enjoy the foods they grow in the garden or orchard, or can buy from friends nearby. It’s touching, informative, and funny. I love the recipes, and that each family member contributes a little writing, too!
