Three Things Thursday - Books about Food

Since I love to read, and I love to cook, I thought it would be appropriate to mix the two together for this Three Things Thursday entry. I give you, reviews by some of my favorite bloggers on the subject of food.

1. First up is a review of Farm City from the blog Muffin Top. It is the story of how Novella Carpenter turned a vacant lot in downtown Oakland into a farm. I've never heard of this book, but it certainly sounds interesting.

2. Jacki at lovely little shelf has reviewed The Emperors of Chocolate by Joel Glenn Brenner. This book tells the story of the big name chocolate manufacturers Hershey and Mars.

3. Lastly, a cookbook that Kim at Stirring the Pot reviewed. I just had to include this one because I love Giada so much. She never disappoints with a recipe, and it looks like Giada's Kitchen is no exception to this statement.



  1. Thanks for the shout out! I love Giada too and just bought her newest book Giada At Home. It's got some great recipes and I can't wait to cook with it.

  2. Thank you for the shout out! Farm City is a great read; Novella is a gifted writer, and her passion for urban farming is very contagious.
