I wish I'd known about Penguin Books' Great Food series when I was shopping for Christmas presents. The series include works by classic food writers like M. F. K. Fisher and Alice Waters, to interesting sounding relics like A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig & Other Essays by 19th-century essayist Charles Lamb. With pretty covers and a price of just $12 each, they'd make great hostess gifts. It's too bad the full collection isn't currently available in the U.S. I wonder if Penguin plans to release them eventually?
