The 15 Best Cookbooks Of 2023

This year we’ve traveled (via cookbooks) already to Taiwan, Minneapolis, and Lagos. Next up? We’ll be heading across the 21 countries of Latin America, thanks to Sandra A. Gutierrez’s Latinísimo.

Divided by the over two dozen ingredients that star in cuisines across the continent (like beans, yucca, and corn, and vanilla), Latinísimo is an exhaustive guide to the region and serves up over 300 dishes with a side of history, from A to V (Argentina to Venezuela). Plus, the easy recipes are practical for everyday home cooks wanting to perfect their arepas game as well as those who’ve waited long for an encyclopedic guide to all things Latin America.
