The 50 best cookbooks

India: Cookbook by Pushpesh Pant
Written by a culinary academic, who lives and works in Delhi, this beautiful book with its rice-sack-inspired cover is the Indian Silver Spoon. There are 1,000 family recipes that have been collected from all over the subcontinent and carefully edited to ensure they are easy to follow and achievable in Western kitchens.

Forgotten Skills of Cooking by Darina Allen
Or to give it its full title: The Time-Honoured Ways Are the Best - Over 700 Recipes Show You Why. Darina Allen's sixth book covers everything from eggs to preserving via herbs and baking. It will take a long time to cook your way through all of this but it's a pretty definitive guide on how to do it. PublisherKyle Cathie How much £30
Bought, Borrowed & Stolen by Allegra McEvedy
Truly, a book of world cooking as the author relates recipes from her travels and links it to cooking knives she has bought along the way. It all looks delicious. PublisherConran Octopus How much £25
