Should we start setting the stage for Best Cookbook of 2011 now that the Washington Post has published its list of Top Cookbooks for 2010 by Bonnie S. Benwick.
I noticed that Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan tops the Big/ Giftworthy category.
I understand now why she is deluged with work and questions and glad for her.
I joked with Elizabeth Andoh when I interviewed her that some cookbooks were heavy enough to knock someone out.
She replied tongue in cheek that was why she eliminated some recipes from her latest book 'Kansha' (Ten Speed Press).
I appreciate the fact that The Forgotten Skills of Cooking (Kyle Books) by Darina Allen made the cut in Washington Post selection.
I see in Ethnic/Regional picks The Turkish Cookbook: Regional Recipes and Stories (Interlink) that I have not have a chance to check yet.
All in all, I am glad to see it is not all about glamourous TV chefs, there is substance too in Bonnie S. Benwick hit list.
Should I offer my 10 Sexiest Food and Wine Books of the Year now?
Will anyone care?
