A Bookworm's additions

After she perused last week's Bookworm list, Susan at The Well-Seasoned Cook noticed a few gaps. Her blog features beautiful photography and interesting recipes from all around the globe, and her reading list is just as eclectic as her cooking.

UPDATE. Susan recommended:

  • Road Food
  • Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World
  • Fast Food Nation
  • Fat Lane: How Americans Became the Fattest People in the World
  • The Omnivore's Dilemma

Hi, Lydia. A revised edition (2005) of "Road Food" is in print and available through Amazon. Thanks for posting my picks. We're having perfect summer weekend weather here. Hope you are, too.

I've recently discovered Susan's blog, and I think it's terrific. I thought Fast Food Nation was a thought-provoking read, and now I'm going to check out The Omnivore's Dilemma. Thanks for the suggestion!

Susan, thanks -- I found it and added to your Bookworm list!

I loved "Omnivore's Dilemma" MIchael POllan is brilliant; so now i am reading The Botany of Desire, his previous book about plants. I also think that "A Movable Feast" is a great non-cookbook that talks about food, where Hemingway depicts his life in Paris.
