50 Essential Novels for Foodies

I find some of the books on this list to be a bit of stretch to be called “essential” (Harry Potter); most are classic foodie fare (Like Water for Chocolate), and there are a few gems that I can’t wait to get my hands on.


‘Tis the season, as they say, to stuff your face. Thanksgiving, that hallowed day of highly caloric foods and oft-tempestuous family relations, is upon us. To celebrate — or just to escape the festivities for a while — why not nourish the foodie in you with some gourmand-friendly literature? Behold, a spread worthy of kings: 50 essential works of fiction (no memoirs or travel narratives here, that’s for another list) to whet your appetite, and then satisfy it, and then satisfy it some more. And as ever, if your favorite got squeezed out, just pile it on the plate in the comments.
