Great Summer Reads for Foodies

By JulieVR |

Summer is reading season, and now’s the time for those who love to read to hone their summer reading list, and stock up on books to take to the cottage or cabin, or to pile beside the hammock in the back yard. I love to read cookbooks myself, but there are an increasing number of books that incorporate storytelling and other narrative along with recipes, great food-related essays and novels based on culinary experiences. Here are some of my favourites – old and new – that I think are worth a read if you like to eat.

Summer book list for foodies

An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace, by Tamar Adler

This is my current favorite book — as soon as I finished, I started at the beginning again. In An Everlasting Meal, Tamar Adler revives the art of home cooking through a series of insightful essays, addressing issues everyone can relate to in a wonderfully engaging voice. Adler inspires home cooks to draw from their own knowledge and experience, to boil vegetables with reckless abandon, and to intentionally create leftovers. It will change the way you approach mealtimes.
