And we thought we were terribly modern and sophisticated in the 1950s and '60s when we started eating Italian food (in the UK at least).

Twenty first century consumers are supposed to be obsessed with sweet stuff but those 17th century cooks could give us a run for our money

I just started looking for free Kindle cookbooks and found this:

40 Top Quinoa Recipes For Weight Loss - Kindle edition by Jenny Allan. Health, Fitness & Dieting Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

If I find more, I will put them on here.

Pretty cool. I love seeing recipes that have no quantities and few instructions Such a challenge.

Question Novels about cooks?

Does anybody know novels about cooks?

When I think of cooks in novels only Jack London's "Seawolf" comes to mind but there the cook is only a minor bad guy...

Would anybody among you care for a novel about a cook?

There is a wonderful movie about a cook, Babette's Feast based on a novel by Isak Dinesen, pen name of Karen Blixen. The movie is in Danish and the subtitles are very good. Babette is the cook. I won't say anything more about the movie/novel, because it would be spoilers. Babette's Feast by Karen Blixen — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

Thumbs up Babette's Feast

Hello taxlady,

yesterday I started reading a new book about J.D. Salinger and that will still take me some days...

Right afterwards I'll read the book you've recommended. I see the book has only 54 pages. I was once told by a reknown novelist a story required at least 150 pages to be considered worthy of getting printed as a book. If a publishing house publishes such a thin book after all it must be very good.

I have only seen the movie, but it is in my list of 10 favourite movies.
