Bookworm, O Bookworm

This week's Bookworm in the Pantry, Rachel, writes not one, but two, fabulous blogs. From her home in Baltimore, Maryland, Rachel creates original recipes for everything from lasagna to cupcakes for Coconut and Lime, a 2006 Food Blog Award winner; on Food Maven, she shares food-related musings, tips, and super-cool product finds.

UPDATE. Rachel recommended:

  • Devil in the Details: Scenes from an Obsessive Girlhood
  • Typical American
  • The Century in Food: America's Fads and Favorites
  • Women Who Eat: A New Generation on the Glory of Food
  • The Tequila Worm

Browse through the eclectic library of previous Bookworm recommendations here.

We'll have a new Bookworm every Saturday, at least through early June.

Bookworm across the sea

Men are bookworms, too! Meet Ian, of Yorkshire Deli, who shares his reading list as this week's Bookworm in the Pantry (see his recommended food-related non-cookbooks, over there on the right). Ian's charming blog chronicles the evolution of his dream — to open a café. If you've ever fantasized about owning the perfect little eatery in the perfect town in the perfectly beautiful Yorkshire Dales (and who hasn't?), then settle in with a cuppa, and read about everything from choosing furniture to sampling foods from the area's many purveyors.

UPDATE. Ian recommended:

  • Floyd in the Soup
  • The Nasty Bits: Collected Varietal Cuts, Usable Trim, Scraps, and Bones
  • An Omelette and a Glass of Wine
  • Chocolat
  • La Cucina

We'll have a new Bookworm every Saturday, at least through mid-May.

It's Bookworm time

This week's Bookworm in the Pantry, Karen, a native Rhode Islander, blogs from St. Louis, Missouri. On FamilyStyle Food, Karen chronicles the healthy and delicious food she prepares for her family. General Tso's chicken? Pasta fagioli? Orange-almond muffins? I wish my mom had been such a good cook.

UPDATE. Karen recommended:

  • Murder Alfresco (Nadia Gordon's Napa Valley mysteries)
  • The Whole World Over
  • A Cordiall Water
  • On Persophone's Island
  • Adventures on the Wine Route

We'll have a new Bookworm every Saturday, at least through mid-May.

Another Bookworm!

Nupur, this week's Bookworm in the Pantry, writes a popular blog about Indian regional cooking . I always learn something new when I visit One Hot Stove, especially from her ongoing series, The A to Z of Indian Vegetables. My list of must-have pantry items grows every time I read her recipes! Nupur grew up in central India, and now blogs from St. Louis, Missouri.

UPDATE. Nupur recommended:

  • Interpreter of Maladies
  • Toast
  • On Food and Cooking
  • Like Water for Chocolate
  • Garlic and Sapphires

We'll have a new Bookworm every Saturday, at least through mid-May.

UPDATE. Pauline recommended:

  • Take Big Bites
  • One More Day
  • Garlic and Sapphires
  • The $64 Tomato

We'll have a new Bookworm every Saturday, at least through the end of April.
