Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain
I am interested in reading about almost ANY underbelly I’ll have you know, but this was just such an entertaining read. I actually listened to the audio book, narrated by the author, which made it even more fun. It’s a little raunchy, a little informative, and A LOT of exciting entertainment. I’ve recommended this book a number of times here, but I just can’t stop.

The United States of Arugula: How We Became A Gourmet Nation by David Kamp
Kamp wrote for Vanity Fair and this entire book reads like a long and juicy magazine article. Tons of information on the who, what and why of the culinary world. I’d recommend it for no other reason than it is a great pre-requisite to watching Top Chef. :)

A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes From My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg
I’ve mentioned this book so many times on this website that I probably sound like a broken record, but I don’t care. I really think it’s that enjoyable. Good Food Stories. That’s it. Simple, eloquent and enjoyable.


*Pantry Confidential — Full of interesting interviews with people who like food. Do you like blogs? Do you like Food? This is blog about people who like food — What’s not to like?

*The Cuisinerd — This website is such a fun combination of food and design. The recipes are always inspiring and the posts are fun to look at!


So tell me, what are some your favorite foodie reads?

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
