December Round-Up

In December, our members have a free choice to review any food-related book. Thanks very much to Suzy of sudden lunch! who reviewed The Perfect Egg by Aldo Buzzi. It seems that the rest of our members, myself (Sarah) included, didn’t make time for book reviewing. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday!

Our January book is My Berlin Kitchen by Luisa Weiss, which was listed in Serious Eats best non-cookbook food books of 2012. It was wrtiten by a food blogger who is half Italian but raised in Berlin. I hope this is a book that can get our group restarted as our reviews have become a bit sparse in recent months. It will be wonderful to be participating in our friendly group again!

Please publish your review in the last week of January, and on the last day of January if possible. Link back to the Kitchen Reader homepage, and come back on February 1 for a round-up of our reviews.

I am looking for suggestions for our upcoming reads. Please let me know if you recieved a food book for Christmas that you think we would like!
