The Family Meal by Ferran Adriá

You might think that even “home cooking” recipes by the world’s greatest chef, Ferran Adriá, would be out of the league of most nonprofessional cooks, but this collection, inspired by the dishes eaten every day by the staff at Adriá’s legendary restaurant, El Bulli, is actually quite practical.

Vegan Pie in the Sky by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Trust me when I say that every one of these reci-pies will blow your mind. I’m not going to lie, I’m not actually vegan. Don’t tell. But I still love this cookbook with a fiery passion (or should I say piery passion?) Check out page 100s Key Lime Pie or page 62’s Blackberry Bramble Pie for some over-the-top deliciousness

Lidia’s Italy in America by Lidia Bastianich

I have owned and cooked from all of Lidia Bastianich’s books, and have never, ever been disappointed. Her warmth and quality of instruction are unparalleled—and her recipes are, of course, delicious. Many of her previous titles featured food from different regions of Italy, but her new book showcases Italian American cooking. Traveling around the U.S., Lidia visits Italian American communities—from New York to New Orleans to California—that have created something new out of the recipes passed down from their ancestors. Sure to be dog-eared and spattered in no time.

Bi-Rite Market's Eat Good Food by Dabney Gough & Sam Mogannam

This is a gorgeous love letter of a cookbook, celebrating the famous market in San Francisco’s Mission District. As much an instruction manual on how to shop as anything else, the book shares detailed directions on how to pick out, store, and prep quality ingredients, and it presents a diverse selection of delicious recipes—many of which long-time Bi-Rite fans will recognize from the deli counter. Focusing on sustainable, organic, and local selections, it leaves you with the feeling of like-minded friends sharing quality tips and tricks.

Food Rules by Michael Pollan, with illustrations by Maira Kalman

I’m a big fan of Michael Pollan and of artist Maira Kalman, so their collaboration is a match made in heaven as far as I’m concerned. This special edition of Pollan’s best seller, Food Rules, includes his terrific, straightforward advice for eating wisely (like always eat at a table), coupled with Kalman’s delightful and colorful paintings. The result is a book that perfectly celebrates the joys of eating well. It would make a fantastic gift.
