The 30 Best Chef-Approved Cooking Gifts

For the friend who has everything, check out this chef-recommended cookbook. As the name suggests, author Joshua McFadden separates the year into six seasons: spring, early summer, midsummer, late summer, fall, and winter.

“McFadden cleverly breaks the produce seasons into six instead of four, which is exactly how I’ve always felt, especially since I am in one of the best regions in the world for produce,” says Michael S. Quigley, executive chef at The Estate Yountville in Yountville, California. “I have given this book as a gift to several chefs, and home cooks, and they have all enjoyed it as much as I have.”
