Gift Idea: Cookbooks!

Cookbooks are some of the best possible books to give as gifts. They are beautiful objects, and they can be enjoyed and learned from over and over again! Your friend/loved one/coworker/frenemy will never forget you!

Here is a round-up of some of the most exciting cookbooks we've recently gotten excited about:

Death & Co is the definitive cocktail book from one of the most critically acclaimed bars in the world! Our friends over at Nouveau Palais are already fans, which we can only take as a good sign!

Made In Quebec: A Culinary Journey (Julian Armstrong) takes you through the seasons and towns of Quebec, sharing recipes and the stories that go with them! We're excited to have some local cuisine representation in our cooking section! A perfect gift for anyone who appreciates local cuisine. Or for that curmudgeonly Albertan relative you're trying to win over to the Quebecois ways...

Plenty More is the latest offering from star chef and store favourite Yotam Ottolenghi! This is a vegetarian cookbook filled with richness and new takes on flavours from all over the world. Give this to bored vegetarians, or to people who you'd like to lure from their meat-eating ways... Or just to anyone who appreciates delicious roasted vegetables of all colours!

North: The New Nordic Cuisine of Iceland (Gunnar Karl Gíslason and Jody Eddy): This gorgeous book from Ten Speed Press showcases the artisan producers of Iceland, alongside 81 delectable recipes featuring skyr, smoked cheeses, liquorice lava, and more! Pair this with one (or all) of Sjón's beautiful short novels for maximum Iceland-o-phile effect!

Sean Brock's Heritage brings you the teachings of the James Beard award-winner and chef at McCrady's, Husk, and the newly-opened taco shop Minero in Charleston. 

The Cookbook Book (Florian Böhm and Annahita Kamali) is just that - a collection of images from some of the most influential cookbooks of the ages. And don't worry - many recipes are included as well! For the collector in your life!

Jennifer McLaglan's Bitter delves into the flavour that has become all the rage in American foodie circles, despite its offputting reputation. She presents the convincing argument that, as Nicholas Day at Slate puts it, "a little bitterness makes food more complex, more subtle, more haunting." A good gift for the adventurous cooks in your life!

Bar Tartine is a revered San Francisco restaurant, so it comes as no surprise that their new cookbook, Bar Tartine: Techniques & Recipes (Nicolaus Balla and Cortney Burns) is receiving rave reviews! For the cooks in your life who want to make everything from scratch!

Relae: A Book of Ideas is award-winning Copenhagen-based chef Christian Puglisi's new book that shares ideas and recipes from his restaurant of the same name. Yet another great-looking book from Ten Speed Press. For those who want "idea essays" on cooking techniques and ingredient rationales alongside their recipes!
