Holiday Gifting: Top Cookbooks of the Year

 

Recipe Cover Image copy

I read a lot of cookbooks. I mean a lot, a lot. I read them for fun, like novels, taking in the stories and beautiful photography, for research, looking at the science of how ingredients blend together and what I can create on my own, like poetry, how the components all marry together on a plate just so and for work, helping me pick the perfect book every month to review for the Just Food monthly column I write. I wouldn’t say I’m the authority, but I have some opinions.

While I get that not everyone is as obsessed with may not appreciates cookbooks the way I do, most people enjoy trying out new foods and recipes, making a beautiful cookbook the perfect gift for any foodie friends or home cooks. Shopping days are getting short, so I’ve done the legwork for you. Below are some of my favorite cookbooks that came out in 2014.

    1. Ample Hills opened a new ice cream factory location in Gowanus, complete with rooftop bar. A bit chilly now, but you should absolutely check it out when the weather warms!
