12 Nourishing Food Books

Food books that feed the soul

We all know that food feeds the body, but in many ways it can nourish the spirit as well. We derive comfort from certain dishes, or find cooking to be a welcome distraction in trying times. We gather friends and family around feast-laden tables and swap jokes and stories as we graze. We connect with our past through recipes passed down, and even use cooking as therapy--emotional and phyiscal. The authors of these books have done all this and more, and come forth to tell the tale. Curl up with one of these books, and feed your soul.
