Holiday Gift Guide: Cookbooks

Cook book gift guideThe holiday shopping season is in full swing! Although the holiday season is about much more than gifts, it is fun to make or buy your loved ones something that will make them smile. In case you have any food enthusiasts in your life, here are a few food/cookbook suggestions. We have a few classic/basic cookbooks, great for anyone just getting into kitchen experiments ( and ). There are a few cookbooks that cater to more natural or whole grain baking and cooking (, and ). A couple of our suggestions are not cookbooks but rather, what I like to call, food literature ( and ). If your loved one is a baker and seems to already have every cook book you might try these ( and ). And number is actually on my wishlist, a seasonal cookbook by two awesome that I admire. xo.

  • Adding this just for fun, because it’s what I want for Christmas!

    After a recent trip to Japan, I’ve become obsessed with making real ramen, not top ramen from a bag. It’s an intense process which is probably why no one really does it, but ohmygosh is it worth it!!

  • I love Micahel Pollan’s books, so I’ll have to check that out! I’ve read excerpts of Gwyneth’s book, but it seems really basic to me, and nothing I couldn’t find online.

  • Thank you for the suggestions loves! One of my favorite gifts to give is a healthy cookbook (preferably vegan/vegetarian) and a gift card to a health food store to shop =) I’ve wanted to get the one by Gwyneth Paltrow, looks awesome! <3

  • I love Gwyneth Paltrow’s book! And I’ve been wanting to get the Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book. Pie is my weakness, so I have a feeling I’d get a lot of use out of that one 🙂

  • I love cookbooks. I probably read and own more cookbooks than I do regular books. My favorites are “Dinner, A Love Story,” “Smitten Kitchen,” and “Homemade with Love”. All women are such powerful and unique writers and their recipes never fail me!


  • This is marvelous! What a great list! And such a good idea for a gift! I may have to buy a few of these for myself and wrap them up under the tree! 😉

  • I have a lot of these! Another I would add to my favorite list is the Against All Grains cookbook- I love her creativity and her blog and everything I have tried of hers has been so good!

  • My friend loves cooking and she will really enjoy some of these suggestions 🙂

  • love to see four and twenty blackbirds on the list! she had a book signing in the cutest store (smith and chang) in jersey city Wednesday night. unfortunately I missed it, but that book is going tops on my list of cookbooks to buy!

    also, everyone NEEDS the jeni’s ice cream book. seriously the best ever.


  • I recommend the Viet World Kitchen blog and her books, which are beautiful (and delicious)
    She has craftsy videos now too.

  • Great list! I’ve given Super Natural as a gift to rave reviews and heard great things about It’s All Good- it’s on my wishlist along with Julia Child, mais oui!

  • My husband works at Pike Place Fish in Seattle, and they just wrote a seafood cookbook using ALL sustainable seafood. Even though I’m biased (clearly), I can honestly say that I have eaten everything in this cookbook and it’s amazing! It seriously is such a great book, and I just wanted to add it to this list. Check it out!
