Quiche lit?

Demonstrating that food writing can always find new territory, Publisher’s Weekly reports an increasing number of books that would fall into the “chick lit” genre also include a food-related element. They’ve dubbed it “quiche lit.” (I’m not making this up.)

Among the titles is one by another Le Cordon Bleu graduate. The Pleasure Is All Mine: Selfish Food for a Modern Life by Suzanne Pirret. The author, once a pastry chef for Jamie Oliver, shares recipes and tales from her life in the culinary terrain of London, Paris and New York. (Willilam Morrow, March)

I don’t know if she researched the title, but I should note that on Amazon that there’s also a book called The Pleasure is All Mine: Memoir of a Professional Submissive. (I’m not making that up, either…)
