Those of you who know Mimi from her elegant food blog, French Kitchen in America, will understand when I tell you that her list of favorite food-related non-cookbooks could not possibly be limited to five; her blog often delights readers with literary references, interviews with authors, and her obvious love of books. I've split the list in two parts, and will share the second half later this spring. A professional writer and the daughter of a chef, Mimi cooks and photographs in her Wisconsin kitchen.
UPDATE. Mimi recommended:
- From Here You Can't See Paris: Seasons of a French Village and Its Restaurant
- On Rue Tatin: Living and Cooking in a French Town
- Poet of the Appetites: The Lives and Loves of MFK Fisher
- Vie De France: Sharing Food, Friendship, and a Kitchen in the Loire Valley
