Take ten: Yummy foods/restaurants mentioned it books


1. A Table at a Window

Family restaurants and recipes!

2. Let them Eat Cake

It's been a while since I read this one, but I remember loving the French bakery!

3. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Turkish Delight! (which, after wanting to try for some time, I didn't actually find that amazing. lol)

4. One Paris Summer

I felt like this book could of been a lot better, but it did leave me craving a good chocolate croissant.;)

5. The Welcome Home Diner


6. My Blue is Happy

Okay, so this one isn't really about yummy food, but I love the popsicle! It makes me think of summer days.

7. Lizzy and Jane

This is such an interesting look at food and cooking for those going through chemo.

8. A Portrait of Emily Price

A trip through Italy, marrying into a family who owns a restaurant, this is the perfect foodie book.;)

9. Jane of Austin

English tea shop meets Texas. I love the combination!

10. Where Two Hearts Meet

I love that Caden is a baker!

Wow, this wound up being harder then I thought it would be! I apparently don't pay much attention to food in books, unless it's a bit part of the story, like a family restaurant.
What about you? Does the food in books stand out to you?

  1. LOTS of great stories and books with yummy foods on this list! Love that you featured one set in Paris (always good food I am sure), Liz's, Hillary's, and of course, Katherine's. I also love the "big deal" made out of breakfast in Melissa Tagg's Walker series, but didn't use those books.

    Fun list! :)

  3. I have turkish delight on my list as well. I have the same thing as you that food doesn't always really stand out to me. Though I do sometimes remember character's favorite snacks, haha.

    1. I must not read a lot when I am quite hungry for the food to not stand out to me.;)
      Have you tried Turkish Delight?

  4. I'm sort of like you. While I remember reading about some amazing foods in books, unless the food was central to the theme, I can't remember what books the foods were in.

    Have a great week. - Katie

  5. All of these books (but the Narnia book) are new to me which rarely happens. I am particularly interested in A Table by the Window. I love food/restaurant memoirs!
