definition of foodoir
a book which is both a cookbook and a memoir. A blend of the words 'food' and 'memoir'.
Foodoirs are celebrity confessionals or tell-alls. In more sentimental varieties of the foodoir, the author embarks on an emotional journey, returning to his or her ancestor's roots (and perhaps, by extension, root vegetables). Many have recipes, too.
