The New Way to Cake by Benjamina Ebuehi

My household is obsessed with The Great British Bake Off. Seriously, my partner and I have seen every available episode. Benjamina remains one of our favorite contestants. We were crushed when she didn’t make it into the top four. But now we get to bring home some of her impeccable flavors. Innovative and easy to follow, this cookbook is a real winner for me. I mean, Hot Chocolate and Halva Pudding. So. Good. I wish I could give her a Paul Hollywood handshake. - Ivy

Nothing Fancy by Alison Roman

Alison Roman (Dining In) could hardly be hotter in the culinary world (social media superstar, creator of viral cookie recipe, food columnist for the New York Times), and her new cookbook is getting all the buzz. In Nothing Fancy, Roman shares recipes for having people over (not entertaining, she notes) that are easy to execute and will make friends, neighbors, or whoever stops by, very happy. I don’t know if there’s a recipe that will go viral (maybe the Grilled Carrots with Limey Hot Sauce?), but there’s plenty to get excited about in these pages. -S.B.

Jubilee by Toni Tipton-Martin

African American cooking is almost always covered as soul food, and yet its history is much richer, more varied, and deeper than that one part of it. In the hands of Toni Tipton-Martin, author of the essential The Jemima Code, the history of this food unfolds as one of skill and ingenuity, adaptation and inspiration. “Equal parts historical highlight reel and cookbook, Jubilee captures centuries’ worth of joy, pain, and effort from Black chefs across the diaspora and distills them into recipes that carefully guide and educate.” —Bon Appetit

The Food of Sichuan by Fuchsia Dunlop

“I’ve been cooking and studying recipes for 20 years, but I could spend the next 10 with Fuchsia Dunlop’s The Food of Sichuan—an updated version of her seminal 2003 book, Land of Plenty—and I’d learn something new every single day. Dunlop’s scholarly expertise is tempered by the clarity of her writing, and she’s actually got me thinking I can make numbing-and-hot dried beef, fish-fragrant cold chicken, and traditional dan dan noodles. This book reminded me of how little I know and made me thankful that experts still exist.” —Bon Appetit
