11 Great Food Books for Cooking, Reading, or Just Showing Off

Thanks to Pinterest, Instagram, and their food-blog forebears, we don’t need cookbooks. And yet we want them more than ever. That’s because the books themselves have never been prettier, more eye-catching, more statement-making — and because they’re tangible archives of creativity and diverse points of view, from traditional cookbooks to chef memoirs to collaborative projects from food-world change-makers. If you know someone who cares about food, whether they cook every day or once a year, there are so many good food books to gift.



Joy of Cooking: 2019 Edition, Fully Revised and Updated

Joy of Cooking has been in print since the Great Depression, but thanks to the release of updated versions nearly every decade since, it’s definitely no longer your grandmother’s cookbook. The latest 1,200-page edition — its ninth — updates more than 4,000 recipes while adding 600 new ones (including for beef rendang and an olive oil granola). Consider it a must-have for every budding home cook. Price: $28
