Cookbooks have always been a good gift for any occasion. Now, with the holiday season approaching – consider sending the perfect cookbook for your loved ones.

Why do I love cookbooks?

I love cookbooks. I find myself going to the cookbook section whenever I enter a bookstore. Looking for good cookbook bargains in a garage sale is sort of my hobby. I like having the books in my kitchen, and occasionally I open a few and look for something helpful. It’s hard for me to relate to a cookbook without pictures. I’m a visual learner, and I need the images (and better be good ones!). Cooking the recipes is just one way to use a cookbook. I like to use cookbooks for ideas and inspiration for what to cook next. Also, I want to use cookbooks to learn new techniques or cooking principles. Some cookbooks are great for general education about food and cooking, and some are great for just browsing and enjoying.

The perfect cookbook for the perfect person:

This year, we might not be able to join our families for a big dinner, celebrating the holidays more intimately. But we can still send something to our best friends and families to show them they are on our minds. There’s a cookbook for everyone out there.

Almost anyone would benefit from a great cookbook, but you must pick the right book for the right person. Otherwise, they won’t’ use it.

Getting holiday gifts shouldn’t be such a daunting task. A cookbook can be something we never use and collects dust. But a perfect one can literally change lives. Each cookbook that one owns has a story of how it got there. If you nail this one, you’ll be getting praise throughout the year!

What’s your must-have cookbook to add to this list?

  1. I would like to recommend a pastry book which transformed my technique: The Art of French Pastry by Jacquy Pfeiffer.
    This book teaches the basics, classics, and advanced pastries while making no shortcuts. It's extremely detailed and the instructions create the feeling of being in a classroom with a master patissier.

    Extremely recommended.
