Favorite Food and Drink Books of 2015

This year I launched a new food book and drinks series, Whisk and Whiskey, and was exposed to a multitude of cookbooks as well as food and drink books.

These are the six food and drink books I have most recommended to friends, family, and anyone else who has crossed my path (my personal definition of "favorite").

What was your favorite food and/or drink book of 2015?


Bitters and Shrub Syrup Cocktails: Restorative Vintage Cocktails, Mocktails, and Elixirs

Bitters and Shrub Syrup Cocktails: Restorative Vintage Cocktails, Mocktails, and Elixirs by Warren Bobrow

Warren Bobrow's Bitters and Shrub Syrup Cocktails once again proves his "cocktail whisperer" title well-deserved. Captivating and filled with gorgeous photography, not to mention the delicious drink recipes, this is the cocktail book of the year.


The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook

The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook by America's Test Kitchen

America's Test Kitchen once again impresses with this hefty vegetarian cookbook, which also includes many vegan and gluten-free recipes.


The Food Lab: Better Home Cooking Through Science

The Food Lab: Better Home Cooking Through Science by J. Kenji López-Alt

My favorite cookbook of the year, The Food Lab: Better Home Cooking Through Science takes a scientific approach to cooking.


Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto

Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto by Aaron Franklin

My favorite Texas barbecue joint's cookbook offers a thorough guide to smoking meat, from wood to smoker to meat to step-by-step recipes.


Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour & Butter

Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour & Butter by Kate Lebo

As well as an accomplished poet, Kate Lebo is also an eloquent evangelist for pie. Her cookbook Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour & Butter brings the lessons from her baking classes to print with the same flair, wit, and enthusiasm in a book as rewarding to bake from as it is to read.


The Southerner's Cookbook: Recipes, Wisdom, and Stories

The Southerner's Cookbook: Recipes, Wisdom, and Stories by the editors of Garden and Gun

The editors of Garden and Gun magazine produced one of my favorite Southern cookbooks, one that masterfully combines recipes of mainstays with regional specialties.
