Warning: Hunger causing books
I love food and I love books. It's rare that something other than a cookbook combines these two loves, but every now and then a book comes along that has such delicious descriptions of food and cooking that I am ravenous by the time I finish each chapter. I am not talking about a book where there is a special recipe that the character makes and that is often included at the end of the book. I am talking about books that intricately describe the act of cooking, the smells, the textures and the taste. Here are two of my favorites. I recommend not reading them on an empty stomach.
