Penguin Great Food booksLiterature and food are two of my favourite things so I was very pleased to hear that Penguin has launched a new series of books called Great Food. As well as being a masterclass in book cover design (if you’re interested, check out Penguin By Design), the Great Food range harks back to the days when food writing was less about Angry Birds cake-based blog posts and more about culinary creativity combined with literary prowess.

The series includes excerpts from well-known volumes such as Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management and Alexandre Dumas’ Grand Dictionnaire de Cuisine along with collections of bite-sized essays.

Damn you, Penguin, I’m still trying to work my way through the millions of titles (approximately) in the Great Ideas series! *shakes fist*
