I love books from all over the place, especially when they talk about food :) Living in Montana has left me seriously in need of some good international treats (which I'm not ashamed to admit I scarfed down like crazy when I visited home). There are a lot of books that make me think of food, but one of my personal favorites is:
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron.
Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love. (Goodreads)
After living in Barcelona for a while, there were several foods (okay, lots) that I still find myself craving. The top one? Hot chocolate. I love, love hot chocolate, and the best I've ever had is in Spain. Especially with churros. I've been on a hunt to find a good recipe ever since I returned, but nothing has been quite right. The closest I've come is from Foodie with Family. But while the chocolate has that awesome thick consistency, it's not quite *it*. The hunt goes on!
