Holiday Gift Guide – Favorite Books of 2023 & Giveaway

The holiday season is in full swing and if you are like me you may be looking for just the right gift for the cook/baker in your life. I want to share a few of my favorite subscription services, cooking kits and favorite books from 2023. Please also see my Holiday Baking post which shares some of my favorite items.

This year I am only going to write about a dozen or so cookbooks because there are just so many fantastic books, as usual. For the giveaway we have the following prize package: Emile Henry modern bread cloche (see earlier promotion and on sale right now at Emile Henry), Lékué sourdough starter set (see Holiday Baking post), More Than Cake, Süss, Sweet France, Bake Smart, Snacking Bakes, and Scandinavian from Scratch.

Samantha Mui, the author of Melting Pot: Stories and Recipes from a Chinese American Daydreamer has created a dumpling kit to help those who are new to the dumpling game: Thirsty Dumpling. Each kit comes with a roller and crimper, dough flour, spices and sauce mix and dumpling filling, a video guide is available, and each kit makes 36 dumplings. Right now you can use the code “LAUNCH10” to take 10 percent off the cost of a kit.

Nancy Silverton made her reputation as the original pastry chef for Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant Spago. Two years ago, Silverton bit into a particularly delicious peanut butter cookie and had an epiphany: every single thing we bake should taste this good. And so she decided to return to her roots, and set to work perfecting the rest of the American baking canon. While these are recipes for the classics, they are Nancy Silverton’s recipes with each detailed instructions for every step of the process. As with any “baking canon”, measurements are given in weight and volume.

Scandinavian from Scratch: Rustic Yet Refined Recipes for Buttery Cookies, Tender Cakes, Flaky Pastries, and Hearty Rye Bread by Nichole Accettola is a collection of 75 recipes for luscious cookies, cakes, tarts, pastries, breads, and smørrebrød at the heart of Scandinavian baking traditions.

Chapters include – cookies, sweet & salty, single layer cakes, modern layer cakes, fruit, baking with vegetables, creamy and elegant desserts and yeasted treats. I am in love with this gorgeous book.

And a few savory titles that make great gifts!

Start Here: Instructions for Becoming a Better Cook: A Cookbook by Sohla El-Waylly is practical, information-packed, and transformative guide to becoming a better cook and conquering the kitchen, Start Here is a must-have master class in leveling up your cooking. I am awe-struck by this volume! 656 pages of the brilliance that is Sohla. Across a dozen technique-themed chapters – from “Temperature Management 101” and “Break it Down & Get Saucy” to “Go to Brown Town,” “All About Butter,” and “Getting to Know Dough” – Sohla explains the hows and whys of cooking, introducing the fundamental skills that you need to become a more intuitive, inventive cook.

Noon: Simple Recipes for Scrumptious Midday Meals and More by Meike Peters is spectacular title for more information see my review in my preview post,

Company: Recipes Menus Advice: The Radically Casual Art of Cooking for Others by Amy Thielen is a must-have for fans of the James Beard Award winning author and chef. See more details about this title in my preview post earlier this month.

Latinísimo: Home Recipes from the Twenty-One Countries of Latin America by Sandra A. Gutierrez is an encyclopedic cookbook celebrating Latin American home cooking – the first to cover the cuisines of all twenty-one nations. Divided by ingredient, Sandra delivers over 300 recipes with many variations along with an extensive pantry section that establishes the fundamentals of Latin American cooking. This is the book on all things Latin American – a must have.

Joshua Weissman: Texture Over Taste by Joshua Weissman: Joshua is one of my “new” favorite cookbook authors. His latest title is brilliant, covering all aspects of texture – crunchy, chewy, aerated, creamy, fluid and fatty. When I have a craving it is almost always for something crunchy. That crispy shattering bite into a crispy piece of fried chicken is perfection. I always order my fries well done and feel there is nothing worse than an anemic floppy French fry – if I am going to have fries then they had better be worth every well-deserved bite. Joshua Weissman’s books need to be on our bookshelves.

Kung Food: Chinese American Recipes from a Third-Culture Kitchen by Jon Kung is exciting and unexpected collection of 100 recipes that re-examines Chinese American food. From dumplings to the most decadent curried mac and cheese, Jon inspires millions through his creative recipes and content.

Of course, a gift certificate for Eat Your Books is always a thoughtful present for the cookbook lover/cook. If you need help purchasing a gift certificate, see this help section or email
