Foodies Read 2017 Challenge

Who is the foodie?

Is he someone who is schooled in the intricacies of kitchen preparations? Someone who critiques and writes reviews? Someone who specializes in the certain cuisines? Or just someone who enjoys food?

Join me as I discover more about food and all its gastronomic mysteries with the Foodies Read 2017 Challenge!

This year, I’m aiming to read at least 9-13 food-related books or Sous-Chef according to the challenge levels.

  • Short-Order Cook: 1 to 3 books
  • Pastry Chef: 4 to 8 books
  • Sous-Chef: 9 to 13 books
  • Chef de Cuisine: 14 to 18
  • Cordon-Bleu Chef: More than 19

This challenge is quite unique as there are monthly sign-ups for the reviews you have made of food-related books (that is if you’d be posting reviews though you aren’t required to do so) so I’ll just post here the original/December 2016 sign-up link:
The monthly sign-up buttons/links are located on the right panel of the blog.
UPDATED: February’s sign up link is here:
Anyone who signs up their reviews are eligible for the giveaways they’re hosting.

For now, I’m planning to read these:

There are no official hashtags but I think you can use #FoodiesRead2017 to promote the challenge.

All my progress would be posted here. Please stay tuned. πŸ™‚
I do think that it might be better to read at least one book a month so I could join the sign-ups/giveaways. Hmmm… πŸ™‚

  2. That’s a great list. Of these I’ve read Garden Spells and The Kitchen Faughter. Both were good. I don’t have a formal list. I just finished On the Noodle Road by Jen Lin-Liu. Next up will be Longthroat Memoirs about Nigerian cooking and then a book about Grandmothers cooking around the world. Both will be In the prize pool eventually.

    • Thanks, Heather! I’m super excited to read the books I mentioned πŸ™‚
      I needed to have a list so that I won’t miss out on anything (plus, I’m just a list person..hehe)
      By the way, is there a hashtag that you’re using to promote the challenge?
