Weekend Cooking is hosted by Beth Fish Reads.
If I read non-fiction, it's usually a memoir, and I'm particularly fond of food memoirs. (Check out my all-time favorites here.)
Two new releases recently caught my eye and are definitely on my "must-read" list:
From the prominent New York Times food writer, a memoir recounting the tough life lessons she learned from a generation of female cooks, including Marion Cunningham, Alice Waters, Ruth Reichl, Rachael Ray, and Marcella Hazan. (Amazon)
By Kate Moses
From the author of Wintering: A Novel of Sylvia Plath comes a funny, touching memoir of a crummy—and crumby—childhood. Filled with the abundance and joy that were so lacking in Kate’s youth, Cakewalk is a wise, loving tribute to life in all its sweetness as well as its bitterness and, ultimately, a recipe for forgiveness. (Amazon)
Also, I love the annual installments of Best Food Writing...and I just came across a similar series, Cornbread Nation (fifth edition just released), which spotlights the best of Southern food writing each year. Anyone familiar with these? Worth checking out?
