Life Is What You Bake It by Vallery Lomas

As an amateur baker, I’ve oft dreamed of winning an American version of The Great British Baking Show. Now, imagine being the very first winner and…the show gets cancelled before anyone finds out. That’s what happened to Vallery Lomas, but it didn’t stop her from turning lemons into lemon chiffon cake. Drawing on her Southern roots, Lomas has written a cookbook for bakers of all stripes and levels. I particularly appreciated the small, surprising tips with each recipe (don’t twist the biscuit cutter!). —Ivy

Taste by Stanley Tucci

Stanley Tucci was born and raised in upstate New York by Italian American parents and their extended family, in a household in which food played a central role. His mother was an accomplished home cook, and he conveys an intense nostalgia for the meals of his childhood. Determined to pass his love of cooking and food in general along to his children and share it with his loved ones, Tucci makes dinner for his family whenever he can and loves to host dinner parties for his friends. His recent battle with oral cancer—which left him without a sense of taste for two years—has only deepened his appreciation for a good meal. Packed with amusing anecdotes and peppered throughout with mouth-watering recipes, Tucci’s memoir will delight fans of his films and food aficionados alike.  —Jade

Claudia Roden's Mediterranean by Claudia Roden

Full of mouthwatering pastas and perfect risottos that use fresh ingredients like olives, garlic, and fresh herbs, this is a comprehensive bible on Mediterranean cuisine, written by a culinary legend. With gorgeous photos and classic recipes like salmon tartare and bouillabaisse, this is both a travel book and a lesson on the history of the food. I have so many new ways of preparing chicken, and you have to try the Spicy Roasted Carrot Salad!—Jason

Death & Co. Welcome Home by Alex Day, Nick Fauchald, & David Kaplan

Calling all bartenders, both professional and amateur! In Welcome Home, the founders of Death & Co. give an expert class on creating cocktails and understanding the mindset and habits that make them great. I really enjoyed the pieces where they write about creating a positive work culture, as well as the suggestions for tastings to do at home (or with friends) to refine and expand one’s palate. As complex and delightful as any of their cocktails, this one is sure to please.—Jax
