Positively Vegetarian

By Rachel Demuth,

Book cover of Positively Vegetarian

I bought this treasure of a recipe book after dining at Demuths. The food was exquisite. A recipe book that’s based on meals which have been tried and tested over and over by a judicious public is different to other recipe books. In its time, more than sixty thousand people a year have eaten in Demuths. Surprisingly, many of those diners weren’t vegetarian but omnivores.  This book is a magnificent collection of the most frequently asked for recipes. Some of the best recipe books are those which don’t feature colour photographs: the focus is entirely on the written recipe and easy-to-find ingredients. This book remains unrivalled in the vegetarian-recipe field.

The Telling Room

By Michael Paterniti,

Book cover of The Telling Room: A Tale of Love, Betrayal, Revenge, and the World's Greatest Piece of Cheese

A few years ago I began a love affair with Spain. To be more specific, locations north of Madrid up to the Basque country. When I picked up Paterniti’s book, I felt I’d found a kindred spirit. The author obviously shares my love for this corner of the world, and he also knows how to write about the culture of small, Spanish mountain towns in a way that rings true. The cheese! The wine! The pride of men! It’s all woven together in this wonderful tale that’s equal parts memoir, mystery, travelogue, and cultural study. This was one of those books that will stick with me forever.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Entertainment Weekly • Kirkus Reviews • The Christian Science Monitor

In the picturesque village of Guzmán, Spain, in a cave dug into a hillside on the edge of town, an ancient door leads to a cramped limestone chamber known as “the telling room.” Containing nothing but a wooden table and two benches, this is where villagers have gathered for centuries to share their stories and secrets—usually accompanied by copious amounts of wine.
 
It was here, in the summer of 2000, that Michael Paterniti…


Tweet Cute

By Emma Lord,

Book cover of Tweet Cute

The humor in this book is delightfully… cheesy. Pun intended. Tweet Cute is about Jack and Pepper, son and daughter of the owners of a mom-and-pop deli and a massive fast-food chain, respectively, who get into a Twitter war once it is revealed that one has stolen the other’s secret family grilled cheese recipe. This book has three things that I absolutely adore: It’s set in New York City, the characters engage almost constantly in witty banter, and it’s packed with puns about—you guessed it—grilled cheese. But humor aside, Tweet Cute is a terrific story about tight-knit families, teenagers dealing with the pressures surrounding high school graduation, and ultimately, following your own path.

What is this book about?

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic over achiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming - mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger's massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper's side. When he isn't trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin's shadow, he's busy working in his family's deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma's iconic grilled cheese recipe,…

By Spencer Johnson,

Book cover of Who Moved My Cheese? An A-Mazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life

The simplest step when adapting to change in our lives is changing our mindset, and the author’s use as ‘cheese’ as the protagonist is brilliant. The quicker we adopt the principle of what we can gain instead of what we are losing when it comes to our ‘cheese,’ be it work, relationships, etc., the quicker we can enjoy a more fruitful life. This storybook-themed parable will help you get out of familiar territory and awaken you to new beginnings.

6 authors picked Who Moved My Cheese? An A-Mazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life as one of their favorite books, and they share why you should read it.

What is this book about?

Who Moved My Cheese? is a simple parable that reveals profound truths. It is the amusing and enlightening story of four characters who live in a maze and look for cheese to nourish them and make them happy. Cheese is a metaphor for what you want to have in life, for example a good job, a loving relationship, money or possessions, health or spiritual peace of mind. The maze is where you look for what you want, perhaps the organisation you work in, or the family or community you live in. The problem is that the cheese keeps moving.

Am I Overthinking This?

By Michelle Rial,

Book cover of Am I Overthinking This?: Over-Answering Life's Questions in 101 Charts

I adore these images. Each is like a tiny memoir wrapped in a graph. Even beyond the puzzle-like pleasure of decoding them, I love Rial’s playful use of real objects. Coffee rings form a Venn diagram about coffee addiction. Floss traces a line graph on dental hygiene. Half-eaten cheese sticks become the bars on a chart of cheese consumption. A delicious book, in every sense!

Food Network Magazine The Big, Fun Kids Cookbook

By Food Network Magazine,

Book cover of Food Network Magazine The Big, Fun Kids Cookbook: 150+ Recipes for Young Chefs

Kids’ cookbooks are about 1,000 times more awesome than they were when I was a kid. Recipes are easy to follow, they’re accompanied by colorful photos, and they feature foods kids actually want to make. For me, this cookbook, takes fun to the next level by including little food facts alongside most of the recipes (Did you know french toast isn’t actually French? The dish can be traced back to the Roman Empire – long before France was even a country!) The cookbook features standard breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes but my favorite chapter is about Fake-Out Cakes. That’s right – they’re cakes, but they look like other things. There are instructions for making cakes that look like everything from a cheeseburger to mac and cheese. Bon appétit!
