Top Ten Tuesday: Foodie Fiction TBR

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: (Choose your own) Foodie Fiction TBR. After talking about my Foodie Fiction February segment yesterday, I decided to make a list of potential foodie reads for next year's event!  I've read quite a bit of foodie fiction already but if anyone has any other suggestions please let me know!

1.  The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones

2.  Bliss by Kathryn Littlewood

3.  The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood

4.  Day of Honey: A Memoir of Food, Love, and War by Annia Ciezadlo

5.  Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie

6.  Crescent by Diana Abu-Jaber

7.  The Kitchen Counter Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn

8.  The Mistress of Spices by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

9.  Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton

10.  The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry


  1. I would add Chocolat to your list. The food descriptions were amazing!

  2. Oh a choose yopur own week, I may have to stop by and try and compile something! I love foodie books...but they often make me want to eat more!

  3. I love foodie books! The only one on your list that I have read is The Kitchen Counter Cookings School and it was great. I would love to read Bliss, it looks really good!

  4. Ohhh I love this list! It's really original :)

    I haven't read any of them, but I've added The Last Chinese Chef to my wishlist.

    I agree with Melissa above too - after reading Chocolat, I only wanted to eat chocolate for weeks!

  5. I would add Gourmet Rhapsody, by Murielle Barbery - who wrote The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Actually Gourmet Rhapsody is focused on one character of The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Fast and very tasty book. here is my review: http://wordsandpeace.com/2011/06/16/my-review-47-gourmet-rhapsody/

  6. You know that I love foodie fiction too. I have yet to read any of these books but several are already on my TBR.
