As summer winds down, our thoughts begin to turn to all the baked goods, slow-cooked dishes, and weekend project recipes we plan to cozy up and cook over the coming months. Happily, fall is also the time when all the best new cookbooks start to hit shelves: The most gorgeous and ambitious volumes in every publisher's catalog are generally saved for September through December each year, meaning there's no shortage of recipe inspiration to be had precisely when the seasonal itch to get back into the kitchen strikes. The crop for 2016 is no exception, with beautiful books to look forward to in all categories, from lighthearted collections of simple dinner recipes to heavily researched volumes that explore an entire country's cuisine. We sifted through this fall's offerings in every category to pick the books worth seeking out for your collection now.
