Another Bookworm in the Pantry

Ximena Maier blogs in Madrid, Spain, and she's our Bookworm this week (see her reading list of food-related non-cookbooks, over there on the right). Be sure to visit Lobstersquad, featuring Ximena's delicious recipes and delightful illustrations.

UPDATE: A reader suggested I list Ximena's recommendations, for those who are visiting this post after her official Bookworm week. Great idea!

Ximena recommended:

  • Like Water for Chocolate
  • Down and Out in Paris in London
  • Short stories of Saki
  • The Debt to Pleasure
  • The Mortdecai Trilogy

We'll have a new Bookworm every week, for the next few months.

Lovely list! I am also a huge fan of Saki, and I bet "Like water for chocolate" is going to be on many many lists, including mine. That book was just such a pleasure to read.

Thank you Ximena, great list. I haven't read The Mortdecai Trilogy or the Saki collection, and look forward to them.
Lydia...again, this is so much fun!

How about Calvin Trillin's "The Tummy Trilogy":?

Great idea Lydia - You have mail!

Ian @ Yorkshire Deli

Nupur and Ian, thanks for sending your Bookworm lists!

Jane, sounds like you have the start of a great book list....want to be a Bookworm?

Great, interesting choices. Several of these are new to me and I'm looking forward to checking them out.
