Food For Thought Book Club: July 2022 🏖️


Oink: A Food for Thought Mystery by J.L. Newton

"Although this storyline has a lot going on—a divorcee-activist-professor (who also happens to be obsessed with food and cooking, and oh yeah, just started dating) gets tangled up in a campus poisoning investigation and dons the P.I. hat to clear her name—I have to admit, that even three chapters in, I'm intrigued enough with this whodunit plot to keep reading Oink. Each chapter ends with a recipe, and a focus on the ethics of GMO food production, strong female characters, and minority studies gives the book a modern, progressive bent that is refreshing in this genre." (Epicurious)


The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert

"Every summer reading list should include at least one good rom-com, right? This one is sweet, charming, and, uh…you’ll definitely get hungry while reading! I recommend having a snack nearby before opening the book, because you’ll get the munchies. I love these light-hearted “fluff” books for the summer!" (So Much Life)


Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg

"This fresh and folksy classic is brimming with good barbeque and Southern charm while tackling heavy subjects with grace and subtlety. In 1930s Alabama, two women run a small-town cafe with love and integrity, surviving visits from the local sheriff, the terror of the Ku Klux Klan, and the rigors of the Great Depression." (Off The Shelf)
