Asked to name their favourite non-cookbook food books, leading chefs nominated:

  1. Blue Trout and Black Truffles: The Peregrinations of an Epicure – Joseph Wechsberg
  2. The Art of Eating – M. F. K. Fisher
  3. Between Meals: An Appetite for Paris – A. J. Liebling

  6. Giving Good Weight – John McPhee
  7. The Perfectionist: Life and Death in Haute Cuisine – Rudolph Chelminski
  8. The Gumbo Tales – Sara Roahen

The first two would appear high on my list but I would also add:
