Holiday Books: Cooking


Highlighting one or two food-related books at a time on this blog hardly covers even a small portion of culinary publications that appear during the year. The New York Times is better staffed than I am and at this time every year a roundup of cookbooks is presented in their Holiday Books: Cooking, this year by Craig Seligman. So, if you're looking for a gift for someone or a treat for yourself, be sure sure to look at the featured publications.

These books and more are available at Jessica's Biscuit and Barnes and Noble online.
