2007 Cookbooks by Friends – What a Great Lot!

Books are my favorite gifts to give – I always give them for engagements and weddings – and, of course, my favorites to get.  So, in this season of giving and getting, I thought I’d make a list of books that would make great gifts and great gets. 

It turns out that this is a very special list because all of the books on it were written this year by friends.  2007 was a great year for cookbooks!  And it was a pretty terrific one for friends, too.

I made this list from memory, so if I’ve forgotten anyone or any book, I’m sorry.

I can’t imagine a book on this list that wouldn’t make a cook very, very happy, so I hope a couple of them find their way down your chimney.  I’m hoping for a few of them myself.

I’m lucky to have such talented friends and we’d all be lucky if we had their books.

OOOPS!  I was afraid this was going to happen.  I missed one of the best books of the year:
