Dean & Deluca Cookbook

Natalie's pick:

I absolutely love to cook and have a rather large selection of favourite cookbooks.  The reason for choosing the Dean and Deluca Cookbook?  It is chock full of expert advice, has it all from meatloaf to coq au vin, and is the first book I grab when I want to try something new.

Laura's pick:

I always find myself flipping through Trish Magwood's In My Mother's Kitchen.  This cookbook focuses on easy, everyday family dishes.  The recipes are my "go to" faves.  Whether I'm having people up to the family cottage, or having some girlfriends over for a casual dinner, this book offers this basic chef the tools to make great meals.

Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen

Jenny's pick:

I can't say that I cook, from a cookbook, in a kitchen, as often as I should BUT I do have my mom's original edition Moosewood Cookbook on my shelf and I absolutely adore it. The book is filled with the most amazing hand-lettered titles and simple illustrations, plus it reminds me of all the delicious meals I ate growing up at home and at my aunt's house too!

Nicole's pick:

Let's be honest, who doesn't love Gwyneth!? My Father's Daughter combines Gwyneth Paltrow's passion for food with her love for her father and family! From a young age, my earliest memories are learning to cook and bake with my grandmother in her kitchen. Besides having many delectable, easy recipes, I adore the premise of the book: the joys of cooking delicious food and sharing it with the people you love most.

Ottolenghi The Cookbook

Sarah's pick:

My brother, Ben, introduced me to the amazing flavours and delicious vegetable dishes from Ottolenghi (based in London, where he lives). I've loved cooking recipes from the previous books, Plenty and Jerusalem, so I can't wait to get my hands on this new book, Ottolenghi: The Cookbook. The combinations of flavours are divine, the dishes are fresh and delicious, and it's easy to prep.

Lindsey's pick:

I have been a devoted follower of Deb Perelman's blog Smitten Kitchen for years so I was beyond excited when her cookbook The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook was finally released.  Her recipes, which include many of the favourites from the popular blog, are accompanied by beautiful photography, easy to follow steps and incorporate everyday ingredients - making this cookbook a staple in any kitchen.
