Every year I send out the GardenFork Gift Guide to our email list. (sign up here) This year I wanted to break it up into a series of gift guides, the first being the cookbook holiday gift guide.
I am not one for buying stuff one doesn't need, but I do think a shelf of cookbooks is OK. If I find I am not using a cookbook, I give it away. The cookbooks below are ones that I use. I either cook the recipes as printed, or I use them as a starting point for ideas of my own.
