Cookbooks are incredible things. Not only are they capable of teaching you about new cultures and cuisines but having the right cookbook nestled on your coffee table has the added benefit of immediately making you appear more sophisticated and intelligent to everyone who visits your gaff. A good cookbook makes for an excellent gift. Which, if you’ve landed on this page after frantically Googling “best cookbooks for Christmas” or "best cookbooks 2022" is exactly what you’re looking for.
Just to set the record straight: this isn’t a list of Christmas cookbooks. It’s simply a list of the best cookbooks from 2022 that you should think about buying that person in your life who – let’s face it – already owns way too many cookbooks but could always still do with having some more. If you give any of these lovely tomes to someone as a gift this year (be it for Christmas or any other religious holiday or non-religious occasion), I can guarantee they’ll be pleased as punch.
If there’s nothing here that takes your fancy; however, you can always check out some of our other list of the best cookbooks around. We’ve rounded up the best vegetarian cookbooks, the best barbecue cookbooks, the best Italian cookbooks, and even the best baking cookbooks for you to enjoy. Basically, it'd be really excellent if you bought a cookbook today. Why not make it one of these?
