The new bible for learning to cook intuitively! This book is as close as you can get to having a personal chef instruct you in your own kitchen. Colorful, fun illustrations and hilarious commentary trick you into learning the science behind cooking.
Truly the go-to for perfecting homemade breads. It has a cult following for good reason! From baker’s percentages to hydration ratios, there’s no better introduction to the science behind delicious fresh bread out of your own oven.
This cookbook soared to the top of my most-loved list as soon as it came out! Tieghan writes a gorgeous blog at Half Baked Harvest and her first cookbook is full of her best cozy, delicious mountain fare. Every picture is drool-worthy!
Joy the Baker was one of the very first food bloggers I started following. Her recipes are fresh and creative, her sweet personality shines, and she is the absolute queen of baked goods. I trust her absolutely on all things baked.
Round two of Half Baked Harvest, this time even easier! More craveable comfort foods in the form of one-pot meals, night-before prep, and slow cooked goodness.
The cookbook equivalent of wrapping yourself in a soft blanket by a roaring fire. Every page is personal, with sections like “What I Eat During The Day” and “Friends Over For Christmas Lunch”. Perfectly defines cozy comfort food.
Dream cookbook for every science-loving kitchen nerd! J. Kenji López-Alt is the managing culinary director of Serious Eats, so you know he knows what he’s talking about – and then some.
Like Joy, Deb is one of the OG food bloggers. I can’t count how many of her recipes I tried and learned from while I was learning to cook as a teenager. Smitten Kitchen helps us be kitchen-fearless and makes entertaining feel easy.
Is it inappropriate to call this cookbook porn? I don’t care, every page is so gorgeously illustrated! Each vegetarian recipe is handwritten over photos with creative drawings.
We need so many more Native American recipes – here’s a good start from a member of the Wet’suwet’en Nation. Traditional recipes slightly updated for health & modern day.
I love the phrase “culinary creativity” – that’s what cooking is all about! If you’ve ever wondered what flavors to pair together or why a certain dish works, this is the book for you.
I picked this up on my first visit to Iceland. Lots of background on native ingredients interwoven with beautiful storytelling and culture.
I just had to include my very first cookbook! Every Saturday my parents would wake up to a new concoction. So much fun and perfect for young kids!
