Reading Challenge: The Foodies Read 2014 Challenge

Apparently, I've missed the Foodies Read Challenge for the last few years, but I heard about it in 2014, so I had to sign up.

The idea, read books that center around food.  They can be fiction or non-fiction.  Well, since it seems like half the cozies I read are centered around food of some kind, how could I resist?

I'm going for the Sous-Chef level, which is 9-13 books, and the challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2014.  While we don't have to list them all right away, I will list the first two, which I know I will get to in January.  Further lists and links will appear here as the year progresses.

  1. Welcome to the Foodies Read challenge Mark! Love the title of the Costa book! I may have to read it for the challenge too!

    1. I am addicted to punny titles, and this one certainly caught my attention for that reason.
