This week’s books section features a special package on new books about the world of food, with reviews by Newsday's own food writers. Don't miss Erica Marcus' take on "Blood, Bones, & Butter" (Random House), the much-buzzed about new memoir by Gabrielle Hamilton, chef / owner of Prune restaurant in Manhattan's East Village.

Elsewhere, Peter Gianotti talks with Esquire food critic John Mariani about his new book, "How Italian Food Conquered the World" (Palgrave Macmillan), which tracks the rise of regional cuisines from Italy in our premier restaurants. And Joan Reminick reviews "Life, on the Line," a memoir by chef Grant Achatz about opening his award-winning Chicago restaurant, Alinea, and struggling with tongue cancer and the harsh treatments that killed his sense of taste.
