Bookish Blog Hops: A Book With Food On The Cover

There are so many books to choose from for this prompt. 

I've decided to pick a few random ones from the books I've read.

Ok so not food but it is a drink which is close enough, One Tequila by Tricia O'Malley

Chocolat by Joanne Harris has to be on this list. I also feel that Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert should be mentioned as food is such an important theme in the book. 

Killer Cupcakes by Leighann Dobbs needs a mention too (and the other books in the Lexy Baker series). It's great if you like cosy mysteries.

If you love poetry, you will absolutely adore Rupi Kaur’s Milk and Honey, which is a collection of short prose and poetry about survival and overcoming life’s challenges. 

The collection is divided into four sections, with each section telling a different story about Kaur’s life, taking the reader on a journey through her life's most bitter moments, from suffering abuse and violence to the sweet moments of overcoming them, falling in love and embracing her femininity. 

I truly adored reading this collection because of Kaur’s outlook on life that is evident throughout her poetry. You can see that though she suffered bad times, she tries to look at the silver lining.

Rupi Kaur is one of the most inspiring and iconic poets of the 21st Century. Milk and Honey sold over 3 million copies worldwide and featured on the New York Times Bestseller list for 165 weeks.

Confession: I read a lot of books with epic foods in them… but not ones with food actually in the title! 

There is one book in particular that happens to fit this criteria, though, and it’s Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe by Fannie Flagg. It tells the story of a middle-aged woman in a crisis who visits an elderly woman in a nursing home, and hears the tale of Ruth and Idgie, two childhood best friends who weave in and out of each other’s lives, brave through small-town scandals (and even a murder or two!) and end up running the eponymous Whistlestop Cafe together. It’s a delightful framing tale, and readers will have plenty of characters to relate themselves to, and entertaining situations, between Ruth and Idgie’s high-jinks in the early 1900’s, to the things Mrs. Threadgoode’s attitude inspires the younger Evelyn to do–not the least of which is the “awakening” of Towanda–not to be missed! I wasn’t altogether craving fried green tomatoes by the end of it, but it did give me a good laugh or several!


Becki - A Book Lover’s Adventures

The Chocolatier by Jan Moran

This was one of my favorite books I read in 2021. My book club read it and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Here’s what it’s about…

A young widow. A husband she thought she knew. On the picturesque Italian coast of Amalfi lies a chocolatier's destiny...

San Francisco, 1953: Heartbroken over the mysterious death of her husband, Celina Savoia, a second-generation chocolatière, resolves to take their young son to Italy's shimmering Amalfi coast to introduce him to his father's family. Just as she embarks on a magical, romantic life of making chocolate by the sea surrounded by a loving family, she begins to suspect that her husband had a dark secret--forged in the final days of WWII--that could destroy the relationships she's come to cherish.

While a second chance at love is tempting, the mystery of her husband's true identity thwarts her efforts. Challenged to pursue the truth or lose the life and those she's come to love, Celina and her late husband's brother, Lauro, must trace the past to a remote, Peruvian cocoa region to face the deceit that threatens to shatter their lives.

This book had all the feels and lots of chocolate throughout the story! So be forewarned, you will be buying chocolate before you’re done reading it.

Valerie - Cats Luv Coffee

Valerie from Cats Luv Coffee

Apparently I don’t read very many books that have food in the title. I don’t know if that’s because I primarily read horror or if I just don’t gravitate to books with food. Seriously ya’ll, I went through my read list from the past year, my TBR, and my list of 2022 releases. Nada. Zip. Zilch. I’m really going to stretch this one a bit but my pick is at least about eating! Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? Big Questions from Tiny Mortals About Death by Caitlin Doughty and illustrated by Dianné Ruzis a book that I’ve had on my TBR for awhile now because it just sounds hilarious and informative! 

Here’s the blurb: 

Everyone has questions about death. In Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?, best-selling author and mortician Caitlin Doughty answers the most intriguing questions she’s ever received about what happens to our bodies when we die. In a brisk, informative, and morbidly funny style, Doughty explores everything from ancient Egyptian death rituals and the science of skeletons to flesh-eating insects and the proper depth at which to bury your pet if you want Fluffy to become a mummy. Now featuring an interview with a clinical expert on discussing these issues with young people—the source of some of our most revealing questions about death—Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? confronts our common fear of dying with candid, honest, and hilarious facts about what awaits the body we leave behind.

Almost two years ago, I read Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi with a friend. This book is definitely worth reading for the writing! I had not thought about it previous to this book but gingerbread has a special place in classics. This book is about a family recipe that comes from the mysterious country of Druhástrana. The fact that it is considered a retelling got me curious and thinking about the fairy tale being referred to here! It was Hansel and Gretel, mostly without a Gretel, and very loosely. The use of food as a way to build connections and friendship with neighbours was emphasised by this book. If you are interested, you may check out the book on Goodreads. The book discussion with my friend can be found on my blog, here.

I think I have a relationship with food (well, who doesn’t, right?!) But looking back, I realize that I have read many, many books with food in the title (excluding food on the cover or exclusively food-related books) over the years since I was little.

It includes books for the younger readers from Enid Blyton’s The Children of Cherry Tree Farm (a childhood fav) when my age was still in single-digits  to the delightful Egg Marks the Spot last year; and it includes YA reads like Jenna Evans Welch’s Love and Olives as well as Laura Taylor Namey’s A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow as part of the Cybils YA fiction readathon in 2021. Of course, I cannot forget … well, I will stop now since there are way too many.
