Flavorwire: Chosen as one of the 50 Essential Novels for Foodies
Date: Nov 25 2013
‘Tis the season, as they say, to stuff your face. Thanksgiving, that hallowed day of highly caloric foods and oft-tempestuous family relations, is upon us. To celebrate — or just to escape the festivities for a while — why not nourish the foodie in you with some gourmand-friendly literature? Behold, a spread worthy of kings: 50 essential works of fiction (no memoirs or travel narratives here, that’s for another list) to whet your appetite, and then satisfy it, and then satisfy it some more. And as ever, if your favorite got squeezed out, just pile it on the plate in the comments.
What if you’re a foodie who’s read all the foodie books? Try this hilarious send-up of the Italian/cooking/romance genre, filled with acerbic asides and mounting ridiculousness, both in food and everything else.
