Anyone who reads cookbooks as religiously as we do knows that publishers save their best releases for autumn—just ahead of holiday feasting and gifting season—and this fall is no different. As expected, some of the industry's biggest names grace the author list: Faviken's Magnus Nilsson takes us on an exhaustive and often hilarious tour through the culinary customs the Nordic countries; South America's top-rated chef Virgilio Martinez shares a love letter to the home cooking of his native Peru; and chef and prolific author Yotam Ottolenghi gives us yet another must-read. In between their covers, you'll find recipes for some of the best restaurant dishes you've ever tasted, from Zahav's revelatory hummus to the NoMad's roast chicken with truffle stuffing, and photographs that are utterly transportive. Collectively, our favorite titles of the season bear one message: travel. Recipe by recipe, they each communicate a sense of place so mouthwatering we're almost willing to hop a plane to taste that dish—but we'll settle for our own kitchens, instead.
