Delicious Food Fiction for The Season of Eating

November 13, 2013 • in the news

We’re almost halfway through November, and you know what that means—the season of eating has begun!


It’s still early in this yummy time of year, so you’re probably hungrily skimming food blogs for great seasonal snacks and trying to incorporate pumpkin into everything.  We figured that in between feasting your eyes, you may want to feed your literary soul a bit, too, so the Editorial Staff at Scribd put together a delicious collection of Food Fiction just for the occasion.

therecipeclubFor those interested in culinary inspiration, The Recipe Club: A Tale of Food and Friendship by Andrea Israel and Nancy Garfinkle may be the way to go. Part cookbook, part novel, The Recipe Club is written in the form of emails, and includes 80 mouthwatering recipes.






Looking for a taste of something more exotic? Try Joanne Harris’ Five Quarters of the Orange, a mysterious novel that takes place in postwar France along the rural Loire River.

If you’re into eating local, How to Eat a Cupcake by Meg Donahue could be the book for you. Set in Scribd’s hometown, San Francisco, the story follows the dramatic happenings between old friends at a cupcakery.





Whether you’re from the South or just love Southern comfort food, Hungry for Happiness will definitely make you both happy and hungry. Once you finnish this empowering, funny book by James Villas, you’ll be craving biscuits and gravy.






No collection of Food Fiction would be complete without something sweet from Joanne Fluke. Keeping  with the holiday spirit, we recommend Candy Cane Murder; it includes shorts by Leslie Meier and Laura Levine, and is full of murder, festivity, and original recipes.


Nothing here whetting your appetite? Take a peek at the full Food Fiction list on, but be warned: reading while hungry can be dangerous.
