Five Books About Food to Drool Over

Updated: Jan 18, 2023

Whoever came up with the idea to merge storytelling and cooking was a genius. Some of the books below include recipes, while others will simply get your tummy grumbling! Check out these five books that will make you hungry:

1. Chocolat by Joanne Harris

Have a box of chocolates handy when you crack open Joanne Harris's book about a French chocolaterie. Also a film starring Johnny Depp.

2. Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan

Comedian Jim Gaffigan will make you laugh and make you hungry in this hilarious celebration of all things food. (His "food map" of the United States is hysterical. And surprisingly accurate.)

3. Love in a Tuscan Kitchen by Sheryl Ness

Sheryl Ness will transport you to Italy in this memoir chock full of recipes and a real-life love story. What could be more romantic than Tuscany?

4. Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel

This romantic and magical novel by Laura Esquivel is unlike any other book I've read. Plus, it includes recipes!

5. My debut novel... which is coming soon!

Set in Rome, this story of two friends who reunite after fifteen years in pasta paradise will make you feel like you've been transported to delicious Italy. Stay up-to-date on my progress by signing up for my monthly newsletter. New subscribers get "A Taste of Italy" for free!
