I haven't been reviewing books on this site, mainly because so many of them flood into my office that I cannot keep up with them. But the public relations reps for a couple of recent books have been pushing hard for mentions. The books are good, important contributions to the food movement, and they deserve readers.

I'm listing them in alphabetical order by title in two batches, part now and part in a second post. Some of them I've blurbed, some not, but all have plenty of useful and interesting to say.  Enjoy!

More to come....
