Icing on the Cake by Tessa Huff

Icing on the Cake is the perfect mix of charming design (love the curved corners!), the sweetest looking desserts, and delicious recipes. From Garden Cupcakes to Peanut Butter Eclairs to Caramel Apple Pear Pie, the baked goods are approachable enough to give them a try, but interesting enough to make them special. Huff’s first book, Layered, showcased her teaching skills, beautiful decorations, and creative flavor combinations, and her latest picks up right where she left off. - S.B.

Shaya: An Odyssey of Food by Alon Shaya

Part memoir, part cookbook, each page radiates with feeling and flavor. Beautifully written vignettes of Shaya’s life and the people who shaped his cooking lead into clear and visceral recipes. Simple instructions powerfully evoke flavor, texture, aroma, and heat at every step of the dish. This book is warm and delicious and will keep you reading and, (hopefully) eating. - Jocelyn

Sunday Suppers at Lucques by Suzanne Goin

Totally deserving of its cult-like following, Suppers celebrates seasonal cooking in a sophisticated, sort-of-serious-but-totally-worth-it way.  Recipes like Goin's Halibut with Fingerlings, Fava Beans, Meyer Lemon & Creme Fraiche require some work, but are extraordinarily good. Whenever I'm planning a special meal, this is the first book I turn to. One of my favorite cookbooks of all time. - S.B.

Cocktail Codex by Alex Day

I think of myself as a cocktail enthusiast rather than a snob, and I found kindred spirits in the gentlemen behind the NYC bar Death & Co. They break down 5 basic cocktails into each component, and then show you ways the drinks can be altered. With recipes and recommendations for good, locally sourced spirits, my favorite aspect is learning how to go about mixing things up yourself! - Jax

The Best American Food Writing 2018 edited by Ruth Reichl

This compilation of essays transcends the stereotypical expectation that food writing has to be light, fluffy, and simple. While there is plenty of gastronomical content, the topics covered here range from feminism, to body image, to politics, to race. The depth and importance of this book, and the effect that it had on me, far exceeded my expectations. - Jade

Isa Does It by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Easy, cheap, and always delicious. Isa is a food genius. I find myself daydreaming about her recipe for Seitan and Wild Mushroom stew more often than I’d like to admit. I’ve loved everything I’ve made in this book so far. Whether you’re a vegan or not this book hits all the marks - accessible, delectable, alluring photography, and witty. - R.H.

Salt Fat Acid Heat by Samin Nosrat

Believe the hype – this book is for you, whether master chef or master microwaver. More than recipes (though we’ve got that too) Nosrat shares with you the secret: cooking is salt, fat, acid, and heat. Easily explaining science and taste behind each component, I now understand my recipes. More importantly, I can cook, to the point of fixing – or inventing – a delicious dish. - Jocelyn

Ottolenghi Simple by Yotam Ottolenghi

The newest book from best-selling chef Yotam Ottolenghi is packed with more of the Middle Eastern–flavored, vegetable-focused food that he is known (and loved) for, but all of the recipes are either quick to make, use few ingredients, or can be made ahead. If you think that sounds too good to be true, fear not: Ottolenghi Simple absolutely delivers. This outstanding collection is filled with food that you’ll want to eat all the time—and with the easy-to-follow recipes, you can. - S.B.
