The modern cookbook is so much more than just a catalog of recipes. It’s art, it’s entertainment; it offers endless inspiration to feed your eyes, your mind and all of your closest friends.
We’re nerds for a well-designed cookbook and have even been known to keep a stack of stunners on our nightstand. As it turns out, Kerrilynn Pamer, founder of CAP Beauty, can relate. She recently shared a stack of her fave healthy, modern cookbooks on Instagram and we can vouch for each of her delicious picks.
Whether you’re a farmers market junkie looking for a reason to stroll through this weekend, or you’re simply sauntering through a dinner party daydream, you’ll find something to love in these modern cookbooks…
