    Just friended (is that a word?) the FSC swappers, I’m already a friend of the From Scratch Club.
    Really want An Everlasting Meal and since I wasn’t lucky last time maybe the second times the charm.

    Wow, it turns out I’ve read a fair amount of these books, though probably less than half–which is great because now I have a lot of book recommendations. Anyway, to get back on topic–it’s a hard choice, but I’ll say Marion Nestle’s What to Eat, only because it’s ridiculous that I haven’t read it yet.

  12. January 28, 2012 at 7:30 pm #

    OK, I shared on FB and I’m already a friend, anyway!

  13. January 28, 2012 at 7:48 pm #

    I friended FSC just this morning. I would love to have My Life in France by Julia Child. It has been on my to read list for a while but I have not yet been able to read it.

    I would choose Make the Bread, Buy the Butter: What You Should and Shouldn’t Cook From Scratch by Jennifer Reese. Figuring that out (one food at a time) has been an ongoing quest. I love that this author devoted a book’s worth of time and effort to this topic!

    I would like Closing the Food Gap by Mark Winne. It sounds very interesting.

    I would love to win Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite writers anyway, and I would love to read a memoir of the practicalities of a local foods diet, particularly given that her husband and children weigh in.

    Food Matters has been on my to read list for the longest, so that would be my pick.

    I’m torn since there are so many amazing titles to choose from, but I will go with ‘An Everlasting Meal’ as the book I’d like to win. I’ve heard nothing but fabulous things about it, and it seems like a perennially inspirational one!

  33. January 31, 2012 at 8:08 pm #

    Allo! Its a meaty list and difficult to pick just one book from it! Thankfully, I already have 6 of these great books, which helps to narrow it down. I would LOVE to win A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg. I love memoirs, cooking at home, shopping markets and I beyond love Paris so it sounds right up my alley! Plus I love memoirs dotted with recipes so you can cook along as you read.

    Thank you!

    I would love “Make the Bread, Buy the Butter”. I like experimenting at making things at home that most buy, but I hate wasting my time!
