The UnitedInFood Book Club – magical words! Super excited. There is much to read, and we love books, especially books about food or cooking that, hopefully, contain lots of recipes. A winning combo for us. Join with us, if you read these books and tell us about your experiences, we would love to hear about them. We will share with you on our social media platforms what our thoughts are and what we cook from these books.
Due to the upcoming holidays, time will be on short supply for leisure activities such as indulging in reading books about food (this does not include searching for the right recipes for the Big Day or for the treasured holiday parties). For December book club, are reading a chapter of a book, Spaghetti Carbonara Day, by Calvin Trillin in his brilliant book, Tummy Trilogy. This book is one of our all-time #1 fav books, and this chapter is hilarious and ahead of its time with an alternative Thanksgiving dinner idea.
UnitedInFood’s selection for its October 2021 book club is Delicious! by Ruth Reichl. If you have read this book, let us know what you think!
UnitedInFood’s selection for its August 2021 book club is We Are What We Eat: A Slow Food Manifesto by Alice Waters, Bob Carrau and Cristina Mueller.
United In Food’s selection for its June 2021 book club was All Stirred Up, Suffrage Cookbooks, Food, and the Battle for Women’s Right to Vote by Laura Kumin. For information on this fascinating and enriching book, please go to https://laurakumin.com/books/all-stirred-up/.

United In Food Book Club’s first book for the launch of its book club was How to Cook a Moose, a Culinary Memoir by Kate Christensen. This book was the perfect one to choose for our inaugural book club because it has lots of topics for discussion, recipes to make (for our book club lunch), and it gave us a chance to think/dream about life as a writer or farmer in Maine (especially during months when blackberries are at their peak).
