Nicole has been recommending a different cookbook every morning, but if you're looking for an encapulated list, the June 2006 issue of Food & Wine magazine has listed their picks for the Top 25 cookbooks of the year. They've grouped their choices into six categories: Chef Showcases, Everyday Experts, Global Exporters, Entertaining Helpers, Southern Stars, and Dessert Specialists. This is great place to start if you're looking for gifts for summer birthdays, graduations, Father's Day, and weddings! The article has a few recipes pulled from some of the cookbooks.

We're always happy to see the shiny happy food magazines and websites crumble under peer pressure to start blogs. In addition to Daily Dish, Epicurious' editor has her personal blog, Epi-Log, now Bon Appetit has their own blog, and we've seen the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle restaurant reviewers turn themselves onto blogs as well. While Food and Wine hasn't yet created their own blog, they have added Blog Watch to their main page on their web presence, which lists their five favorite food blog posts from the previous week.
But just give them some time. We know we'll see a blog from them soon enough. Just got to make sure its up to Pete Wells' standards...
Among the recipes: you can get really fancy and make her Lobster Eggs Benedict, or you can simplify things and make her French Scrambled Eggs. They even have Pumpernickel Waffles, where the secret ingredient in the batter is ... mashed potatoes!
