"Omg you sound like my kind of writing friend! I love books centered around food. Heck, I love any story centered around food. I am also a fellow foodie. But I went beyond the standard foodie level and went to culinary school (for fun at the time).…"

Welcome Back Luke Murphy, Author of Kiss & Tell

I remember when I first started writing—the moment I decided to get serious about writing, to write with a purpose. When I first decided that I wanted to write with the intention of seeking publication, I bought a couple of books on the craft of writing to help improve my style. One book I bought was Stein on…See More

Welcome M.K. Gilroy, Author of Cold As Ice

Detective Kristen Conner is always hungry so she covers the full spectrum of dining experiences in the Windy City! In fact, food is such a big part of what’s on her mind, I set up a Novel Restaurants Pinterest Board in 2012 to highlight Chicagoland eateries Kristen visited in Cuts Like a Knife and Every Breath you Take. With Cold As Ice releasing August 1, 2015, the board will soon have seven new restaurants, including…See More

Welcome Rhiannon Frater, Author of Fighting to Survive

Breakfast tacos. The food of the gods. Delicious, hot warm flour tortillas filled with a variety of combinations of ingredients such as scrambled eggs, chorizo (spicy Mexican sausage), fried potatoes, refried beans, bacon, and cheese topped with real salsa. A staple of Texas cuisine, the breakfast taco is one of…See More

Welcome Mark David Gerson, Author of The MoonQuest

Guess Who’s Coming As Dinner? What do you do when you’re invited to dine with cannibals? That’s Yhoshi’s dilemma in an early scene in The MoonQuest, the first book in my Q’ntana fantasy trilogy. Yhoshi’s gaze shifted nervously from Bold’ar, cleaning his second bowl of stew with a long black tongue, to the two…See More

Hi Shelley!

I just thought of a book that might interest you. Perhaps you've read it: Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. If you don't know it, it's not at all like the movie, it's a memoir of sorts, but it reads like good fiction. That book is loaded with food talk, and recipes if I recall correctly. I know I mentioned Pat Conroy to you in an earlier comment, but this one popped into my sieve-like pea brain this morning. Thought it might be worth passing on.

Oh, and Bill Buford's book Heat about training to be a chef in Mario Batali's restaurant is another good one--I think I put on weight while reading that one! I have a chef in my next novel, so I've been reading food related books--hence my blurting multiple titles at once!

Have a wonderful day!

Thank you for the friending, Shelley! You've made my day! :-)

And no, your pun wasn't too much, but then I love a good pun (yours made me laugh out loud, so how can that be bad?). And writing about food...mmm, I might bloat to a five-hundred pound land-monster if I was in that line of work--I refer to some of my favourite cookbooks as pornography, so there's a potential vice there ;-) Thank heavens there are brave gals like yourself acting as scribes on that oh-so-wonderful subject!

Have you discovered any of the Phaidon books about food? In case you don't know, if you sign up for their newsletters you get members only invites to killer sales. They make decadent books on art, photography, architecture, film, and food! I got one in the last sale called The Art of the Restaurateur by Nicholas Lander. It's all little stories about well-known chefs starting their restaurants. I've got to get a couple other books out of the way before I can bite into this one (how's that for too much on the pun scale? ;-) ). They make some of the most beautiful cookbooks, too. 

Drop me a line if you'd like to chat about food, books, or whatever!

Have a wonderful day!

Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Shelley!

Am I reading right, that you have a blog about food in fiction? I love that! It makes me think of Pat Conroy's novels, how food plays such an important role in his fiction. I'm a foodie who doesn't eat meat, so food has become a major element in my fiction too. Looking forward to checking out your blog! :-)

Feel free to tell us about the books you loved, or the ones you didn't, start a discussion, post links to blogs, reviews, or articles that you think everyone needs to read--anything that fits your definition of literature goes, including song lyrics, poetry, film scripts, and plays! One caveat: this is not a self-promoting group; it is meant to champion the work of other writers, so we look forward to hearing what you think we need to read! Most important, please have fun!

I'm a bit new to the group moderator biz, so if you think I've overlooked something, let me know and I'll do my best to come through.

Glad to have you aboard!

Cheers!

Thank you for reaching out, Shelley. I've been considering deep-sixing She Writes for being too clickish, but maybe I'll give it another look.

Lovely to connect with you, Shelley. Thanks for reaching out!

Hi Shelley, thanks for reaching out; I'm just getting back into SheWrites after a super long editing run!
