Weekend Cooking: Guess the book title

I haven't done a Weekend Cooking post for a few weeks, mainly because I haven't been trying any new recipes, I haven't been looking at any cook books or any cooking websites and I haven't read any food related books. The closest I have come is a couple of scenes that had me thinking about writing about food as a sensory experience, but that post is still bubbling away under the surface.

And today, I don't have any of those types of things to post about either. Instead we are going to play a game - guess the book title. I will give you a few clues and if you get it right, you will know the title of the next book that I am going to read. If I get organised, I will also review the book for next week's Weekend Cooking post. Although, I have just looked at the almost completed post and had the sudden thought that a drink might not count for the purposes of Weekend Cooking. Whoops! Never mind, it's done now.

So are we ready?

Clue No. 1
(Had to include this because if you have lived in Adelaide for any length of time you know It's Farmers Union Iced Coffee or it's nothing)

Clue No. 2

I have previously reviewed one of this author's books for a Weekend Cooking post.

Clue No. 3

Clue No. 4

So, who knows what book I am starting next?

Weekend Cooking is hosted by Beth Fish Reads and is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs.


  1. The Various Flavours of Coffee by Anthony Cappella? :)

  2. Drinking Coffee Elsewhere by ZZ Packer?

    There is also a YA book that is set in a coffee shop ... the name is escaping me right now.

    Regardless of the title, a beverage (especially one as essential as coffee) is very apropos for Weekend Cooking in my book. :)

  3. All I could think is the Various Flavors of Coffee by Anthony Capella. I love that movie snag!

  4. PS I hated The Various Flavors of Coffee and didn't finish it. Let me warn you - farting jokes, enough said.

  5. Hi,
    You reviewed Anthony Capella's "The Food of Love". This I am sure it's his "The Various Flavors of Coffee." I like how you found that video with each ordering different coffee flavors. It did get 4 Stars rater from Amazon -- shouldn't be bad at all! Good luck Marg.

  6. Lots of coffee?! I'm not a big coffee drinker, but I hope you're enjoying the book!

  7. Lots of coffee?! I'm not a big coffee drinker, but I hope you're enjoying the book!

  8. again, I have failed.
    even with the clues, I was clueless. :-)

  9. I'm going with the Cappella book too. And I think that coffee ordering clip so funny, died laughing the first time I saw it.

  10. First -- of course a drink counts -- as do movie reviews, novel reviews,and anything else that is "remotely foodie."

    Was thinking of the Cappella book, and I see I'm not alone in that guess.

    Loved that clip -- that clip alone makes a Weekend Cooking post in my mind.

  11. No idea but I'm looking forward to the answer.

  12. No idea about the book but I love the idea of a quiz to find out the book title.

  13. No idea what this could be, but I look forward to finding out!!

  14. To those who guessed The Various Flavors of Coffee by Anthony Capella, you were right!

    Beth F - remotely foodie leaves a lot of room!

    Amanda, I kept going past the farts, it did get better, but it won't be my favourite book from him. The main character is better than he was at the beginning of the book, but I wouldn't exactly call him likable.

  15. I love Iced Coffee - yum!

    There is also a set of cozy mysteries set in a coffee shop by Cleo Coyle
