Best of the best 2023

We have assembled 382 lists from around the world to create our 15th annual Best of the Best. The top book of 2023 is…..drum roll……Start Here: Instructions for Becoming a Better Cook by Sohla El-Waylly.

As well as the top 10 books of the year plus six runners up, we have charts showing the votes from the UK/Ireland, Canada and Australia/New Zealand. We also produced specialist charts for Vegetarian & vegan, Drinks, and Food writing/memoirs. Check out all the lists plus look back over the previous 14 years of lists.

    So glad to see Andrea Nguyen on this list. She is a member on the podcast Everything Cookbooks and you can tell her recipes are well tested and thoughtful from how she talks about her creation process.

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
