The Best Cookbook Lists Just Keep on Coming


I know it’s that time of year. But, I’m already suffering from a case of Best Burnout. Best cookbook posts are everywhere. I’m not suggesting that these aren’t well written and thoughtful pieces. It’s just that there’s a swarm of them.

I was hoping to write a post highlighting some of my own choices for the best cookbooks of 2011. But, I’m not sure I really want to be just tossed on top of the already heaping pile of posts. I almost feel obligated. After all, the name of this site is cookbookman.com.  I’ll think about it and get back to you.

In the meantime, there were a bunch of best lists posted in the past week or so. You can check out some of the selections right here. Of course, there are some regular, old fashioned cookbook reviews mixed in there too.
