Now on Kindle: Delights and Prejudices
Delights and Prejudices - James Beard
The Art of Eating: 50th Anniversary Edition - M.F.K. Fisher

This was the first foodie book I ever read.  My parents had a copy and I devoured it.  Several times.  There are parts of it I memorized when I was a child.  I reread this book in paperback format recently and it was a very different experience as an adult.  The man was undoubtedly a snob but boy howdy can he describe food.  The opening of chapter on potatoes, the description of the food served by his mother's Chinese-American servants, the oysters...


I still think of appetizers as doots after all these years.


The book was released in Kindle format on 03/03/15.  Link: http://tinyurl.com/prk8fnw


Seeing this reminded me how much I wish MFK Fisher's books were available on kindle, so I went looking to see if maybe they might be and, yes!  Some of them are!  Her books have been available on kindle for a while.  I guess it's been a long time since I looked. Here's a link to The Art of Eating:  http://tinyurl.com/l3fsvvl.  It's a wonderful book. If I didn't have a project to work on for class I would spend this weekend reading it.

Beard on Food: The Best Recipes and Kitchen Wisdom from the Dean of American Cooking - James Beard One of the best of the food writers. The information is dated but the recipes certainly still work.
