Zoomie Station, a three-month-old blog, springs from the kitchen of Zoomie, the nom de plume of a San Francisco-based career counselor who writes about lots of things: cooking, restaurants, tableware, weddings, books, her Beloved, and her great-grandmother's china, to name a few. Clearly her taste is eclectic -- the same probably can be said, thank goodness, about all of the Bookworms in the Pantry -- and her list of recommended food-related non-cookbooks is unique: five books from a series of fifteen that's completely new to me (and how did I miss it?). Zoomie adds, "All are amusingly written by Michael Bond [the creator of Paddington Bear] and all feature the bumbling ex-Sureté-officer-turned-food-critic for a major French restaurant guide, Monsieur Pamplemousse, and his bloodhound, Pommes Frites. It's a funny and well written series and, as you might expect, features lots of descriptions of food and restaurants he's reviewing." Doesn't that sound like fun?
UPDATE. Zoomie recommended:
- Monsieur Pamplemousse
- Monsieur Pamplemousse and the French Solution
- Monsieur Pamplemousse and the Militant Housewives
- Monsieur Pamplemousse on Vacation
- Monsieur Pamplemousse Hits the Headlines
