Have I ever mentioned that my sweetheart, Andrew, is a classically trained chef? Oh, yeah. Aside from the natural and fluid grace he has to his method of cooking, I love that he has helped me fine-tune my appreciation for cookbooks. I find it to be incredibly overwhelming to seek out and find a great cookbook, but with his eye for a well-curated book of recipes we have added some truly wonderful books to our collection this year.

Most of these aren’t just for the skilled cook either; in fact, the only one that I would consider to be advanced would be Heston Blumenthal at Home (an amazing book!). The others are just as special and would make wonderful projects to take into the new year…for me least.

Heston Blumenthal at home – advanced, but straight-forward and exciting recipes

Japanese Farm Food – life, community, and seasonal food on an organic Japanese farm

Home Made – easy and approachable “from-scratch’ recipes with lovely photographs and illustrations

Gastropub Classics – finally a gourmet’s guide to good British fare from the chef of The Fox Dining Room in London

Japanese Hot Pots – gorgeous and simple Japanese one pot dishes (donabe), clean comfort food

Grow Cook Eat – from the garden to the table, an urban gardener’s (new or seasoned) guide to seasonal cooking
