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.
