Cookbooks can be a tricky gift. Is it too narrow a cookbook (muffins only, for instance?) or too broad? Are the recipes too difficult or too easy? Will they already OWN this cookbook?
I recently got a copy of Picture Cook and I think it is the PERFECT cookbook to give as a gift. Plus it just came out last month, so the chances of them owning it already are very slim.
Even if the person you have in mind doesn’t actually cook, it makes for a great coffee table book or just a fun volume to flip through (and, probably, after seeing this cookbook, they’ll want to take up cooking).

This cookbook is unique because instead of written directions, all the instructions for making the 50+ recipes in the cookbook are illustrated instead.
Instead of plowing through paragraphs of instructions, only to realize you skipped a step, these ones are easy to see. It’s perfect for visual learners and its just so cool looking. I’ve never seen a cookbook like this.
And, even if you have no interest in picking up a kitchen knife, I’m betting this book will make you think twice.

Written by Jennifer Petro-Roy I was a late-comer to the beauty of audiobooks, but a few years ago, I absolutely fell in love with them. Another way to read books while simultaneously making my commute less hideous? Sign me up! But ever since I left my job a little over a year ago to stay [...]
Plenty of food bloggers go on to write cookbooks. Sometimes they’re not worth picking up – they’re virtually carbon-copies of their blog – but others of them are just Plus, there is something so nice about having a book to open up on your counter while you cook, or being able to go through the [...]

And I’m determined to squeeze in as much beach reading as possible, even if I have to substitute “apartment patio” for “beach.” Here are five [...]
