Serious Eats: Talk

Food related books - need a good read.

It's winter and there's nothing better than curling up with a good book, especially one about food. Here are a few of my favorites:

"Nathaniel's Nutmeg" Giles Milton (the history of nutmeg)
"Kitchen Confidential" Anthony Bourdain
"Hungry Planet: What the World Eats" (amazing pictures of what families around the world eat in a week)
"Guns, Germs and Steel" Jared Diamond (history of human societies, and the differences between those who did and did not domesticate plants and animals)

I need some new books. I'm open to fiction, non-fiction, comedy, serious, whatever. What are your favorites?
