Holiday Cook Book Gift Ideas

If you have a food lover in your family or a chef friend, we’ve got some great recommendations for cook books as holiday gifts!

1. For the Food Scientist/Pre-Chef School: Kenji Lopez Alt’s The Food Lab is the why and how of cooking everything perfectly. It’s a culinary boot camp in book form.

2. For the Baker: Anything from Dorie Greenspan, but especially Dorie’s Cookies and Baking Chez Moi. Her baking is the perfect cross between rustic and fancy (is there such a thing?) and her directions create perfection on the first try.

3. For your Love: Cooking for Jeffrey by Ina Garten. Ina and Jeffrey’s love is tangible, and to me, nothing says love like food!
