2014 Foodies Reading Challenge
This was one of the challenges I completed in 2013. I was hoping it would be back for 2014. It's hosted by I'd Rather Be At The Beach
Here's the details...
If you are new to a food/reading challenge, you may be wondering – what is a “food book”? A food book is a book which is centered around food and/or drinks. That could be a cookbook, a food biography or memoir, a non-fiction book focused around a specific food, wine, chef or restaurant, or a fictional story in which food plays a major role.
Here’s how the challenge works:
1. Decide how many food books you want to read in 2014.
Pick one of the reading levels below:
Short-Order Cook: 1 to 3 books
Pastry Chef: 4 to 8 books
Sous-Chef: 9 to 13 books
Chef de Cuisine: 14 to 18
Cordon-Bleu Chef: More than 19
Last year I did 3 books. This year, I'm going for the Pastry Chef level with 4-8 books. I will list them throughout the year here...
