This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic, see this page.

Food is a magnet....It draws visitors to the kitchen, and readers to a book whether it is a cookbook with tremendous recipes, cozy mysteries with a talented cook, or a novel about a family eating in the dining room for a change. There are these books and more that surround the food we love and the food we hate.
This group is a place to discuss those books that have central characters that take us on a culinary adventure, whether it is real -- by teaching us how to cook the most magnificent soufflé -- or fictional by solving a mystery or taking care of a loved one with old-fashioned chicken soup.

Bring your cup of coffee or tea, have a sandwich or donut, sit down and have a chat. Tell everyone about the books you love because they sound so delicious. Bon Appétit!
