Best of the best cookbooks of 2013

This is our 5th annual amalgamation of every cookbook list – this year we found more than 200. Pok Pok  There wasn’t a clear winner for the first time but Pok Pok by Andy Ricker (his first ever cookbook) just edged into the front on the final sprint.  See who else made the top 10 and which author has two different books in the top 10 (a first in our survey) in our Best of the Best roundup.

We also have lists from the UK/Ireland, Canada, Australia/NZ and category lists for vegetarian/vegan, gluten-free/Paleo, wine/beer/spirits and memoirs/food writing.  Please share this list through social media – you can use this shortcode – as it really is the only cookbook review on this scale.
