Bring on the cookbooks! The modern cookbook is so much more than a recipe manual. We like to think of the best cookbooks as coffee table books, lifestyle guides, chic gifts, and – of course – actual references on how to eat and what to cook in the kitchen.
A few of our favorite cookbooks this year have truly shined in that coffee table-slash-cookbook space (hop insdide one book’s San Fran pantry here.) A few come from our favorite restaurants (Gjelina!) and others from our favorite chefs. Jerusalem by Ottolenghi became an instant classic a few years back and we’re keeping it on our list, get a recipe preview here.
Other books we love have come from top bloggers, including the Sprouted Kitchen’s Bowl + Spoon and My New Roots. Books we recommend as gifts this year include Near & Far, a travelogue as much as a cookbook; Hemsley Hemsley, fun from cover to cover; and Finding Yourself In the Kitchen, the ultimate kitchen meditation.
Find our full list of over twenty cookbook picks below and use them to inspire your way through Thanksgiving – and to stock up on as gifts for the holidays beyond!
