2009 best cookbooks

December 7, 2009

Lynn Andriani of Publisher’s Weekly brings together best cookbooks lists from

  • Amazon
  • Denver post
  • Eat me daily
  • Epicurious
  • New York Times
  • NPR
  • Publisher’s Weekly
  • and Serious eats.

in her article Round-Up of the Round-Ups.

I buy many, many cookbooks but I can’t guarantee I bought all of these.  Now is the cookbook season.  Publishers are hoping people will be generous with gift-giving.  I don’t know how many $50 cookbooks we can afford.

She says the most recommended are:

“First, the obvious: Momofuku by David Chang and Peter Meehan (Clarkson Potter) gets the nod for most frequently mentioned, landing on five lists; runner-up is Ad Hoc at Home by Thomas Keller with Dave Cruz (Artisan), which is on four lists. Beyond the gimmes, The Craft of Baking by Karen DeMasco and Mindy Fox (Clarkson Potter), How to Roast a Lamb by Michael Psilakis (Little, Brown), Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy by Lidia Bastianich (Knopf), My New Orleans by John Besh and Dorothy Kalins (Andrews McMeel), and Rose’s Heavenly Cakes by Rose Levy Beranbaum (Wiley) each got nods on multiple “best of” lists.”

View all of the lists that Andriani has gathered together.
