Chef Memoirs, Biographies, and More!

I am obsessed with cooking shows: Chopped, Master Chef and Iron Chef America are some of my current favorites, but now that I think about it, I used to watch the Frugal Gourmet and some Julia Child when I was younger. On the heels of this obsession has come another one—chef memoirs and biographies. I also love culinary mysteries, but that’s a whole other blog post! Following is a list of just some of the “foodie” books out there; some I’ve read and some I haven’t (yet).

















Books by/about Julia Child (who would have turned 100 on August 15)






If you are looking for one of these or something similar, you can use keyword searches for “Food writers Biography”, “Restaurateurs biography”, “Chef memoir”, etc. Of course, you can always come to the Reference Desk and we’ll be happy to help you search.
