foodoir — a written description of someone's experiences which includes recipes or focuses on food -
A foodoir is an account of someone's personal experiences characterised by a strong emphasis on food, either through the inclusion of recipes or using food as a mechanism for expression. Among the first examples were the works of American food writer Ruth Reichl, restaurant critic for the New York Times. In books such as Tender at the Bone: Growing up at the Table (1999), Reichl describes the fascinating characters who shaped her world and her tastes, punctuating her musings with recipes which could then bring the flavour of her stories directly to reader's plates. ‎- Victory through semantics
