Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Love Garlic and Sapphires - I didn't think it was fiction, though?


message 2: by Lee (new)

Lee It's not fiction.


message 3: by Dottie (last edited Feb 22, 2009 04:07PM) (new)

Dottie I removed it from the list -- it is not fiction and didn't belong on this list. I haven't looked through the entire list so there may well be others which should not be on here.


message 4: by Lee (new)

Lee Dottie, you rock!


message 5: by M Leigh (new)

M Leigh I started a new group called Food and Fiction. Everyone who likes to read books with food, eating, or cooking is welcome!


message 6: by Patricia (new)

Patricia Herlevi Thank you. This is a fun foodie list.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Isn't Cake Wrecks (62) non-fiction?


message 8: by Lee (new)

Lee Yup, looks like it.


message 9: by Lee (new)

Lee Also, number 85, The Sweet Potato Queens' Big Ass Cookbook looks like it shouldn't be here either.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I removed Cake Wrecks, but left The Sweet Potato Queens' Big Ass Cookbook for the time being because, contrary to what the title indicates, it does seem to contain "anecdotes" as well -- whether these are fiction or nonfiction I don't know, not having read the book myself.


message 11: by Jeanne (last edited May 29, 2013 02:48AM) (new)

Jeanne Ferris "The Last Chinese Chef" by Nicole Mones definitely should be on this list! Two more strong candidates are Elinor Lipman's "Inn at Lake Devine" and Jeanne Ray's "Eat Cake."


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It's pretty easy to add books to lists; at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."


message 14: by Allie (new)


message 15: by Elyse (new)

Elyse I removed Julie and Julia - non-fiction.

At Goodreads, we love reading (shocker, I know). There's just nothing like curling up on the couch with a cup of coffee or tea and burying...

Anyone can add books to this list.
