Do you have a favourite food fiction author or cookery book writer?

Dianne I really like the Ree Drummond Ashley and Sarah have a tizzy fit if I mention Paula sometimes they take that health food crap a little to far!

As you can see from the books at the bottom of the home page I love Antony Capella's and Sarah-Kate Lynch's books. Can anyone recommend authors who write in a similar vein?

Dianne Also as you find books that you like if you make a shelf for your food books and then hit the Recommendations tab at the top of the page it will give you all kinds of books based on the shelf. It's a great function and can make your TBR list grow.

Cath | 4 comments If you like food writing, please please please familiarise yourself with the late Laurie Colin. Reading her books is always like a great big hug to me!

Hi Cath. I've searched for Laurie Colin on Goodreads and Googled her but can't find anything. What did she write?

Sariann Lehrer (choppedginger) | 11 comments I think Cath meant Laurie Colwin, who Dianne mentioned above.

Great, thanks.

Cath | 4 comments Hmmm, sorry about the typo! Have you read Heartburn, by Nora Ephron? If you like good foodie fiction, then you should!

Emma (emmathelemon) I just finished 'Blackberry Wine' by Joanne Harris today - it was stunning. Just like in 'Chocolat', she uses amazing, rich descriptions of food, but also of the French countryside and people. I can highly recommend her to anyone because she's not too heavy on any genre, even romance ;)

Thanks for bringing up Laurie Colwin ...I have both Home Cooking and More Home Cooking and I've read them both many times...her writing is wonderful and so are her recipes.

I really enjoy Joanne Harris too, not least because she lives in a village near my home Town of Huddersfield and was born only a few miles away. (Actually that's got nothing to do with why I enjoy her books, just wanted to let you know I live near her)!
