As part of my immersion in the world of cooking and baking, I have amassed quite a collection of cookbooks and food writing. Here is where I’ll share some of my top favorites with mini-reviews and suggestions for further reading. There is nothing quite like reading about foodies discussing food (or watching them talk about it for example on Food Network’s The Best I Ever Ate series). I find it *almost* as pleasurable as eating itself. Even if you don’t find reading about food as tantalizing as I do, these resources can help you take your cooking/baking to the next level.
