(article, Culinate staff)

Looking for food books to give as gifts this year? Check out the many recent best-of compilations for 2010's crop of cookbooks. National Public Radio, for example, produced a list that includes Grace Young's Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge and Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table. Publishers Weekly plumped for Cooking with Italian Grandmothers and What I Eat, among others. The Washington Post highlighted Forgotten Skills of Cooking and Baked Explorations. And the New York Times, naturally, made sure to include books from its own contributors, including Mark Bittman's The Food Matters Cookbook and Amanda Hesser's The Essential New York Times Cookbook.
