  1. I'm such a mess in the kitchen. I'm in awe of people that can cook, probably why I'm obsessed with Top Chef. :-)

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT.

  2. I love to read about food. Wish there were more food stories out there. Maybe I just don't know about them?

  3. I haven't read Julie & Julia, but I did see the movie and it was super cute. Maybe I should pick up the book as well!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  4. I also love to read about food and cooking--you've got some great titles here that I'm not familiar with. Relish is already on by TBR list, but I'll be adding some of your others. Please stop by to check my link for books on food!

  5. Lovely list, I hardly ever open a cook book or read about cooking, but love MasterChef and similar shows. I do like biographies and travel books, which is why your choices look great.

  6. Great list! I think my mum has the Julia & Julia book (or at least, I know she watched the movie! lol). The Paris My Sweet book looks great too. Thanks for sharing this :)

  7. I have wanted to read Julia and Julia ever since I saw the movie... Have you seen the movie? If so, how do you think the book and movie compare? Fun list! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  8. You made a 'foodie' top ten. You're a genius! I love your list :D

  9. Both the movie and the book are good. (It's hard to say a book is better than a movie with Meryl Streep, I think!)

  10. I've not read any of these, and I'm more or less useless in the kitchen. I really like that you made a Foodie top ten though. :)
    Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier. :)

  11. Yummmmmmm...glad I'm reading this during lunch. I have to confess, I've only read Julie & Julia and it was just ok for me. Around the World in 80 Dinners looks really interesting though - I'm going to have check it out.

  12. Heehee! I had a feeling it would be Relish! That is a graphic novel I want to read! ;) Also, as I have been getting more and more into Food Network, I have wanted to get into foodie lit! Thanks for sharing this list, I'll be adding a few of these for sure!

    And thanks for stoppin' by! Have a great week!

  13. I haven't heard of any of these...one day I'll explore more of the bookstore than I do. lol

    Though I have read (and enjoyed) French Milk by Lucy Knisley so I might have to see if my library has Relish.

    My TTT is here.

  14. I really enjoyed Julie and Julia, although I liked the movie more than the book.

  15. Relish is a fantastic read. I would recommend Consuming Passions: A Food-Obsessed Life by Michael Lee West.

  16. Off to add Consuming Passions to my wish list!

  17. Interesting list! I haven't really read any of these books, but they definitely sound intriguing. It's making me sort of hungry though - I'll have to eat a cookie before I add them to my TBR. :D

    Thanks for stopping by!

  19. I've never read any of these books, but I LOVE food (even though I'm a complete mess in the kitchen)Your list made me very hungry :) and thank you for stopping by on my blog <3

  20. I just picked up French Milk by the girl who wrote Relish. Also your post made me hungry. Also I just purchased Provence, 1970 by Luke Barr which is about Julia Child and MFK Fisher... no idea if it's any good yet, but thought I'd mention it! Oh, and I'm sure you've already read it, but one of my all time fave books with recipes was Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes (and the book was really different from the movie). Also the Peter Mayle books - A Year in Provence etc. had a fair amount of food in them!

    Great post!
