Chocolate, cupcakes, strawberries, and whip cream. All of which can make my mouth water when I read about them in books. There are so many great books out there with or without recipes that showcase delicious imagery of mostly baked goods. Since I've been on such a foodie bender with cooking shows I thought I would find some scrumptious books and quotes that we can all drool over.
Other than the three quote worthy books above, here are some other foodie books I've read that you might enjoy:
Meet Your Baker: A mystery centered around a baker in her family bakery called Torte. If you like small towns, recipes at the end of your book, and cozy mysteries you might just like Meet Your Baker.
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake: A really odd book with a main character with an unusual power to taste the emotions of the person who made what she's eating.
The Cupcake Queen: Small town, enemies, friends, a cute boy, and a cupcake shop all rolled into one.
Cake: Love, chickens, and a taste of peculiar: A girl moving from foster to foster home settles down in a place where magic is real and in the form of desserts!
The Savages: A very descriptive take on eating something very different from desserts... this family has a hunger for flesh.
The Orchard: One taste of an apple and a perfume maker finds her way into a romance. More romance than food book but who's complaining?
It's Raining Cupcakes: A moody mother, an independent daughter, a cupcake shop, and a baking contest are all in store for you in It's Raining Cupcakes.
Pie: A deceased aunt who's pie recipes are famous and a niece who's on a search to find them.
Relish: A journey into a writer's relationship with life and food.
Will Devour Later
Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World: Seems like not too complicated vegan cupcake recipes.
The Help Yourself Cookbook for Kids: Looks like a very vibrant cookbook with simple recipes even if it's marketed to kids.
Little Beach Street Bakery: really only want to read because of the cover and the words beach and bakery.
All Four Stars: Love the idea of a kid food critic and gourmet chef.
A Batter of Life and Death: The sequel to Meet Your Baker!
Fresh Delicious: Vibrant colors and poems to make kids (and adults) want to eat healthy food from nature.
The Ugly Dumpling: Look like a cute retelling with pretty illustrations.
