Wed, 07 Dec 2016

With so many amazing cookbooks on the market, there really is something for everyone. Our books gift guide offers our pick of the top cookbooks to buy your loved ones this Christmas.


Buy For:
The starter cook in the family. This all-rounder is ideal for someone who is newly married and looking to make a domestic splash, or an avid cook who needs an arsenal of bedrock recipes.


Buy For:
The person who travels through their recipes. This is a compendium of recipes honed from Rick Stein’s travels around Europe and we couldn’t recommend it more – we have yet to come across one of his recipes that doesn’t work.


Buy For:
The hipster uncle. This fabulous book focuses on the recipes from Dublin’s most popular day-time eatery. From Middle-eastern inspired lunch dishes to brunches that sing off the pages, this is the ideal kitchen companion for an urban-dwelling millenial.


Buy For:
The Bookworm and culinary star of the family. This is a read AND a cookbook – ideal for curling up with over Christmas. Gift it to the person who is handy around the kitchen and who likes to read about food, and how it makes you feel.


Buy For:
The health-conscious person who is exploring different ways of eating themselves well. Part explanatory tome, part cookbook, this is an excellent book for anyone who is interested in Ketogenic cooking.


Buy For:
Anyone who is concerned by the atrocities raging across Syria. Top chefs have come together to create recipes that evoke the food of Syria and its profits will go straight to Unicef.


Buy For:
The family member intrigued by updating our indigenous recipes. Catherine Fulvio has the midas touch when it comes to making Irish food sing, and this book is a celebration of our homeland.


Buy For:
The family show-off. Matt Preston is Australia’s most prolific food critic, and this book is a collection of all the tips and tricks he has picked up throughout his career to make food taste restaurant-quality, without the stresses.

Roz Purcell Natural Born Feeder

Buy For:

The clean eater. Roz Purcell has a passion for healthy eating and is an inspiration for those looking for a healthier diet incorporating natural and whole foods.


Buy For:
The person who has a calendar of days on their kitchen wall which counts the time until their next Mary Berry installment. This is good, home cooking with rigorously tested recipes, and is an excellent addition to any family kitchen.


Buy For:
Anyone, really. The fact that Oprah has penned a cookbook means that the world has officially turned on its head, and we should all clamour for a copy of what is sure to be filled with Oprah-esque gems and photos of herself and Gayle knocking up various feasts in the kitchen.
