These memoirs are filled with stories that revolve around food: Food as career, inspiration, or lens for life experience. There’s a juicy insider view from a waitress-turned-restaurant critic; a humble backstory for one of the country’s most famous chefs; a certain Top Chef host spills all; and one man’s journey to Vietnam might be impossible to finish without buying a plane ticket. It’s safe to say that all of these books will make you hungry for food, travel, and adventure. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
