There are a lot of cooks at NPR. Every year when we ask our staff for recommendations for Books We Love — NPR's annual, year-end books guide — we get back a veritable smorgasbord of cookbook offerings. Scroll down to find out what our staffers were up to in the kitchen this year, and to explore selections from food writer, author and NPR contributor T. Susan Chang. This is just a sampling of our food recommendations in 2023 — to see the full list, head over to Books We Love.

This is just a sampling of the titles in the Cookbooks & Food section of Books We Love. Check out all of this year's selections, and stick around to browse picks from the last 11 years.
