What's the last food memoir you've read? Ah, I'm a self-confessed food book addict since those books are usually filled with stories of passion, travel, love and self-discovery - all centered scrumptiously around food. So here are 10 hot new and not-so-new releases that will make you hungry and not only for food...

Food and the City: New York's Professional Chefs, Restaurateurs, Line Cooks, Street Vendors, and Purveyors Talk About What They Do and Why They Do It by Ina Yalof - 3. 32 Yolks: From My Mother's Table to Working the Line by Eric Ripert - 4. Cooking as Fast as I Can: A Chef's Story of Family, Food, and Forgiveness by Cat Cora - 5. Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler - 6. American Wino: A Tale of Reds, Whites, and One Man's Blues by Dan Dunn
