The Best Cookbooks

The gift that keeps on giving...

Here's our roundup of the best, whether you're on the hunt for a gift for the foodie in your life or need some inspiration for non-boring and tasteful recipes we've got you...


1. Planted

Vegan Cookbook

As Marcus Wareing's executive chef at Tredwells, winner of AA's London Restaurant of the year, Chantelle is clearly very talented. In Planted she offers an abundance of tasty, restaurant-quality vegan recipes to make at home. Her recipes may look high-end, but they are easy to create in your kitchen and will impress even the most devoted meat- and cheese-lovers. This is not a book about veganism, it is about fantastic and tasty food, made without animal products. It celebrates produce, seasonality and food that tastes good!

3. Simple

Ottolenghi Cookbook

Everything you love about Ottolenghi, made simple. Bursting with colourful photography, Ottolenghi showcases Yotam's standout dishes that will suit whatever type of cooking you find easy - whether that's getting wonderful food on the table in under 30 minutes, using just one pot to make a delicious meal, or a flavoursome dish that can be prepared ahead then served when you're ready. These brilliant, flavour-forward dishes are all SIMPLE in at least one (but very often more than one) way.

by Ottolenghi £14.59

5. Slow

Gizzi Erskine Cookbook

In a world where we have less time, Gizzi Erskine breathes new life into the idea of 'slow'. Embrace technique, understand the stories behind your ingredients and learn to savour the art of cooking again. The result of a life-long affair with food, slow shows you how to braise, bake, poach and roast to truly make the most of every flavour. From nourishing stews, melt-in-the-mouth roasts and indulgent puddings, to simple guides to making your own pasta, noodles, dumplings and pastry, each recipe tells the story of Gizzi's passion for food that's worth waiting for.

by Gizzi Erskine £14.74


6. Missoni Family Cookbook

Missoni Cookbook 2019

While Missoni clothes have been handed down by fashionistas since the 1970s and are covetable and prized, Francesco Maccapani Missoni, the son of designer Angela Missoni, feels the same way about the family's distinctive recipes. For the first time, The Missoni Family Cookbook chronicles the Missoni culinary tradition, making these delicious, well-guarded family recipes available to home cook. One for the coffee table or the stylish foodie in your life, you can now be at home- and a tavola-with the Missonis.

by Francesco Maccapani Missoni £38

8. Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat

Salt Fat Acid Heat - best cookbooks

Quite simply an essential, this beautiful, approachable book captures how it should feel to cook: full of exploration, spontaneity and joy.
