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.
