This year the holidays coincide with my moving to a place with an actual kitchen, and I’m looking forward to being able to enjoyably cook again—and spend Sunday afternoons baking, too, during the long winter of hunkering down ahead. Is it any coincidence that the cookbooks I want most out of this list are in fact baking books? Probably not.
For those in your life in need of some old-fashioned comfort, for the home chef and the novice looking to take on winter culinary projects, and for lovers of cookbooks that are as much objects of beauty as they are instructional, here are 10 new titles from the year to tie a bow on and gift.
N.B.: We’ve linked to Bookshop throughout and encourage sourcing from independent bookstores this season, too.
