The Ten Best Cookbooks of 2010, According to Everyone Else


It’s the end of the year, time for best-of roundups. Rather than create our own list of the top cookbooks of 2010, we took a look at everyone else’s and determined which books overlapped the most. So without further ado, here are the 10 cookbooks you should have read by now (as compiled from The Daily Beast, Publishers Weekly, The New York Times, Serious Eats, NPR, Epicurious, The Piglet, Amazon, and Bon Appétit). And if not, well, that’s what Santa’s for.
