Favorite food books?

Looking for great food books (not cook books unless they are really heavy with great content outside of recipes). Books that inspire, educate and entertain. Have enjoyed Ruth Reichl, MFK Fisher, Alice Waters, Kermit Lynch...but are hungry for more!!
I love Michael Pollan's books Botany of Desire and the Omnivore's Dilemma. The first is more about botany and the second more about the agriculture industry, but they are about food, too! The second one is waaay more about food, as Botany of Desire also goes into tulips and marijuana.
Calvin Trillin is lots of fun. I also like the Michael Ruhl (sp?) books - Making of a Chef and Soul of a Chef.
