Children's Books that Feature Food

My Side of the Mountain is a classic food survival story as is Hatchet. Worry Week, by Anne Morrow Lindburgh, is a girls survival story set on North Haven, Maine. Blueberries for Sal, Newbury the Clam and Leroy the Lobster all use a Maine setting. Ping of the Yangse is set in China. What other children's books feature food as as a theme, either directly of indirectly?
Pumpernickel Tickle and Mean Green Cheese
Bread and Jam for Francis
Leave Herbert Alone features a tuna fish sandwich as a sort of deus ex machina
and the descriptions of food in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Farmer Boy are drool-worthy
Thanks, I should have searched the board. At least I didn't post on the other thread and forgot about it! Whew!
