Omnivore Books on Food

About The Store

Featuring new, antiquarian, and collectible books on food and drink, Omnivore grew out of Celia Sack's career in rare books and a passion for book collecting. She loves learning about food, the traditions that have evolved through generations, and the past wisdom about food and cooking that still applies today (or, equally fascinating, that glaringly doesn't!).

Omnivore connects the past to the present by offering centuries of knowledge on growing, raising, and cooking food. We offer everything from 19th Century agricultural guides to how to start a kitchen garden in a 21st Century apartment. Signed First Editions by past and present culinary luminaries such as Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher, James Beard, and Marco Pierre White. Cookbooks from the eras of Colonial India, Belle Epoque France, 1950's America, and of course, today.

While the store is full of books, it also hosts numerous events featuring chefs and authors talking about their passions. Search the website, sign up for our e-newsletter, but better yet, come in and browse, sit down and read, learn how to catch a hare, or cook a wolf -- what could be better?
