Beach Reads

Well, there's no beach involved, and it's not brain candy....sorry. :)

As some of you may have noticed, I tend to read a lot, especially during the summer when I have a little bit more time. I finished Julie and Julia, and I enjoyed it immensly! She's a wonderful writer, and while it took me a little while to get used to the sailor's mouth, I loved it. I will definitely be getting her new book which comes out this December. But since I have finished that book, I've started another (big surprise) called Becoming a Chef by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page.

It's been a very informative book, and I would suggest it for anyone who has a remote interest in the food industry, whether you're looking to become a chef or you are just an avid home chef. The authors reveal a lot about the food business, especially since a lot of the advice is coming from famous chefs around the world. Just to give you an idea of some of the topics, here are a couple of chapter titles:

Chefs, Yesterday and Today; Early Influences, Discovering a Passion for Food; Cooking Schools, Learning in the Classroom, and more!

I'm maybe about halfway through the book, and I love it! I have more books on my shelf to read, but if you have any suggestions, don't hesitate to let me know!
