7 Food Books to Gift and Treasure

I love reading books so much that I had bookshelves built into my office walls from floor to ceiling. I now have my favorites at my fingertips, dependable, informative, like old friends to converse with from time to time. Now along comes the electronic books that make it easy to heft large thick books without straining the wrists, but something is missing for me. Old habits die hard, I guess.

I love to give books as gifts, although I have come to learn that my tastes in books are not always some one else’s. Since then I have limited my gift choices to cookbooks and non-fiction, at the same time suggesting novels I think my friends and students might enjoy. For you last minute shoppers I have assembled a list of books about food, ones I have shared with others to great fanfare and shows of appreciation. For my Saturday blog I will provide a list of yoga and spiritual books you may find to your liking. Meanwhile, I would love to hear your choices for books to share, or just books you cannot live without, so that we might all be gifted by each others choices.
