Last December I posted on my top 3 books published in 2010. This year, moving home has meant I've handled all of my books several times over - sorting (having an indulgent read), giving away, packing (having an indulgent read), unpacking (reading). It's been a good opportunity to remind myself what I have, what I don't need and what I absolutely do. So, I was tempted to do a December review of older books this year, but for consistency here are my top picks of 2011 food publications. I will indulge myself with more reviews of older books in 2012.
