The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Bring on the Grub! A Banquet of Nonfiction Books about Food and Eating
--selected by Jeannette Hulick

At this time of year, many of us gather with friends and family to celebrate feast- and food-related holidays, from Thanksgiving to Christmas to Kwanzaa. We at the Bulletin are all in favor of feasting; our staff is forever celebrating birthdays and holidays (and perfectly ordinary days) with liberal amounts of cake and cookies. We believe that books and food go together like peanut butter and jelly (I, for example, cannot read anything by Laura Ingalls Wilder without a snack close at hand). This month, we're serving up a dozen nonfiction titles sure to please even picky eaters-uh, readers. Pass over those pilgrim books this November and instead try featuring some of the following tasty titles (along with your collection's cookbooks) in a display, or use them to cook up a few palatable programs. Bon appétit!
--Jeannette Hulick, Reviewer and Editorial Assistant
