One of my fiction food favorites is Chocolat by Joanne Harris--about a chocolate maker in a small French town. Loved the movie, too.
Another such book is Like Water for Chocolate: A Novel in Monthly Installments with Recipes, Romances, and Home Remedies by Laura Esquivel. Also made into a movie.
And, of course, there's Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café.
The Devil's Larder: short stories with a twist, and they are all about food.
La Cucina: The very weird life of a Silician girl with a passion for food, cooking, and one or two other things...
Al Dente: The history of Italy intertwined with local food, even a couple of recipes.
Toast: An autobiography in food. Delicious and disgusting. Sometimes a bit too English.
Ana Gavalda's Hunting and Gathering which is set in Paris, also focuses on food and its preparation. Two of the main characters are Camille, an anorexic who needs to change her eating habits and Franck, a talented chef. This book was a real delight.
They are mystery books but very light-hearted and much better than her Phryne Fisher books.
