The Giveaway for Planet Taco ends tonight at midnight.  So hurry and enter.  Find the link below.

It's time to say goodbye to December and to the year 2013.  I look fondly back at the year and count my blessings.  My son turned 15, my daughter 13, I read 83 books and made my goal. I met lots of new authors, enjoyed family time and had many new experiences.

Join me in saying goodbye to December's author in the spotlight Jeffrey Pilcher.

Please check out my book review of Planet Taco.  Jeffrey is a history professor and teaches classes at the U of MN on the history of food and drink.  Planet Taco is exceptionally detailed and packed full of educational information.  Included in the book are pictures, maps and recipes. Planet Taco is a great book for those willing to put in the time.  I can guarentee that you will learn a lot from reading this book.

Planet Taco Book Review

Check out the author interview with Jeffrey Pilcher.  If you are a foodie, (isn't everyone a foodie?) you need to read this interview about Jeffrey's book, Planet Taco.  Jeffrey has a cool job where he gets to teach food history classes to University students.  Read this interview to learn more about this intellectual and fascinating book that details the history of Mexican food.  He even shares a recipe for guacamole.

Please read Jeffery's Guest post on books about food, cooking and the history of food from different regions.  Read on to learn about food from India, Japan, Mexico and more.  It will make you hungry and tease your senses.

It has been a pleasure to work with Jeffrey Pilcher this month and I would like to thank him for being the December Minnesota Author in the Spotlight.  I met Jeffrey Pilcher at the Twin Cities Book Festival a year ago in October, 2012.  I love reading books about food and food history and Planet Taco is so interesting to me.   I'm so glad I was able to feature Jeffrey Pilcher here on BookSnob.  Please check out his book, Planet Taco.
