Are you a cookbook collector? We know how you feel! This season there are so many new releases that we might need another bookshelf just to hold them. Here are just 7 of the cookbooks we are most excited to get our hands on – and to stain with ingredients as we cook with them.

For a Party of One
Our friend Anita Lo has been busy since shuttering her West Village restaurant Annisa in NYC last year. Her new cookbook – Solo (a play on her last name) – offers 101 recipes to cook for yourself, because not everyone is hosting a dinner party for 8 people. The simple “globally-inspired, restaurant-quality dishes from Lo’s own repertoire” can easily be multiplied should the need arise. By the way, Anita’s first book Cooking Without Borders is also worth having in your collection.

We’re thinking that if you have only one dessert cookbook, this could be it.

Yes, we’re having dessert.

For the Mediterranean Food Fan
Did we say 7 books? You can see the trouble we have resisting cookbooks. Here’s a bonus round: Yotam Ottolenghi promises simple recipes in his seventh cookbook of the same name. In it you will find 130 recipes “made in 30 minutes or less, with 10 or fewer ingredients, in a single pot, using pantry staples, or prepared ahead of time for brilliantly, deliciously simple meals.” Who can say no to that? We predict there will be a copy of Simple under every Christmas tree this year.
