This may have been the year we returned to restaurants full force, but it was also the year we continued to hone our home-cooking skills developed during the start of the pandemic. And while we may have finally killed our sourdough starter, there were worlds of cooking we explored beyond bread baking. These 13 books guided our journeys this year, including recipes from some of the world’s best kitchens and personal stories about the relationship between food and family. If you haven’t devoured them already, get ready to dig in.
