Best Cookbooks of 2015

Best Cookbooks 2015

It’s that time of year when the biggest decision facing some of us is whether we gift the latest cookbooks we’ve had on our wish list for months or keep them for ourselves. Although truthfully, we’re not wasting hardly any time soul searching or wringing our hands over this. Not when there’s such an array of tempting new cookbooks that await. Simple and sophisticated, authentic and outrageous, nostalgia-inducing and eyebrow-raising, you’ll find all that here in the best cookbooks of 2015. As for just how altruistic we are or aren’t, at least we’re sharing them with you.–Renee Schettler Rossi
