Over the next few months we have a superb line-up of books, covering chefs, cakes, history, and family.
In April we will be reading My Life from Scratch: A Sweet Journey of Starting Over, One Cake at a Time by Gesine Bullock-Prado, chosen by Shelley of My Little Chickadees. Get a copy today and you can join us in posting about it on the last day of the month. I hope you try a recipe, too, they sound like crowd-pleasers!
Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky is our May book, chosen by Stacy of Little Blue Hen. It’s a history of this global foodstuff, covering politics, economics, science, and cooking. It’s full of thrilling anecdotes and there are even some recipes, too.
Our June book is Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle Hamilton (chosen by Aileen of Pharma Foodie). The New York Times’ recent review of it says Hamilton is “adept at using tactile, aromatic prose” to describe her early life of glorious food and her tortuous, round the world path to opening a New York restaurant. (And Clotilde from Chocolate & Zucchini liked the book, too.)
