June is food month at #1book140, our Twitter book club! Help us choose by suggesting great fiction and nonfiction in the comments section.
Suggestions can come from any genre; just remember to tell us in the comment why we should read it. I've recently enjoyed reading by Joe Fassler's interview with chef Dan Barber
about the literary influences of The Third Plate
, his book about transforming the farm-to-plate movement. I love Feast
by Martin Jones, a beautifully-woven narrative anthropology on why humans share food
. We also shouldn't forget the great parties of fiction
, memoirs of chefs
, collections of great food writing
, and memoirs of food critics
. Books by food bloggers
are fair game. I'm also excited about cheesemonger Lucy Knisley's Relish
, a graphic novel of her life in the kitchen.
