We've managed to consume more than just food this year -- we consumed some food books too! We were pretty pleased with the crop -- these books have allowed us to evaluate our eating choices, vicariously eat some incredibly tasty meals and learn a few things about the world in which we live. While we also rounded up a separate (and fabulous) round-up on the year's best cookbooks, this list focuses on 2011's best non-fiction food books. Even if you don't consider yourself much of a cook, and if you've never found yourself particularly fascinated by the world of food, many of these titles are nonetheless worth a read. Although food may be the primary subject of these books, you end up learning about business, culture, health and more as well. Enjoy the page turning!
