2018 Bestsellers

2018 was another excellent year for cookbooks. Our bestsellers list is dominated by established cookbooks authors – Yotam Ottolenghi, Nigella Lawson, Diana Henry, and Dorie Greenspan (just to name a few) all published new books this year. Two books from 2017 were also bestsellers: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat and Six Seasons by Joshua McFadden, two powerhouse cookbooks that continue to draw customers and be staff favorites. Several local authors published wonderful books in 2018: How to Taste by Becky Selengut, Let’s Stay In by Ashley Rodriguez, Chinese Soul Food by Hsiao-Ching Chou, Home Cooking by Kate McDermott, Pasta, Pretty Please by Linda Miller Nicholson, and Searing Inspiration by Susan Volland all deserve a place on your shelf. Other favorites that didn’t make this list but are definitely worth checking out are Meera Sodha’s Fresh India, Nik Sharma’s Season, and Julia Turshen’s Now & Again.
