This is completely worth the $40 merely for the recipe for Roasted Pork Belly with Crushed Butternut Squash and Walnut Salsa alone. (P192). Not food you'd whip up on a school night - but the flavor combinations are SO clever, SO interesting and totally doable, this just might be the last cookbook you need.

As someone who devours at least two bars of at least 80% chocolate a week (and lives dangerously close to Taza), I found this book fascinating. From process, descriptions of fair-trade versus direct trade, to types of bars to creative pairings, this is THE book on chocolate today. Just remember to include a few bars when you gift it!

There's no better gift to either get or give than a gorgeous big fat cookbook, especially if it's Italian. And if you've been lucky enough to visit the out-of-this-world food emporium Eataly then just the title of this book will make your mouth water. The recipes are often simple and uniformly delicious, and the pictures are scrumptious. Buy one as a present and one for yourself.

It is meant to tug on your heart strings and, at the risk of editorializing, it SHOULD! The recipes in Soup for Syria are the basic stuff of life and have sustained these people for centuries. They aren’t fancy, but as we enter the winter season, these soups are just what we want … hearty and healthful. The likes of Anthony Bourdain, Ana Sortun, Yotam Ottolenghi, Alice Waters and others have contributed to this collection. Proceeds from sales of this book will help fund relief efforts for Syrian refugees. It is the holiday spirit all wrapped up in one single volume.
