225Dorie.jpgInducted into the James Beard Foundation's Who's Who of Food and Beverage in America, Dorie Greenspan is the author or co-author of over a dozen bestselling and beloved cookbooks, including Around My French Table, From My Home to Yours, and her latest, Everyday Dorie: The Way I Cook. So what has Dorie been reading this year? When we asked, she said, "It’s not fair to be limited to just three books, but here goes. The common thread among these three books is that, in addition to recipes I want to make and have made, each of the books is a good cover-to-cover read. Nothing’s better than a cookbook with good recipes good writing."

See her picks and why she chose them below, and look here for the latest celebrity favorites. For even more recommendations, learn more about the Amazon Books Editors' picks for the Best Books of the Year.

How to Eat a Peach by Diana Henry

I love Henry’s style of cooking – easy-going, full of flavor and beautiful without being the least bit fussy. And her writing puts you in the place, whether it’s her kitchen or a market in Oaxaca that she visited after a boyfriend dumped her.

Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert’s Renegade Life by Emily Kaiser Thelin

Paula Wolfert was among the first writers to bring the true flavors of the Mediterranean to American kitchens. Her recipes, coaxed from cooks around the world, were demanding, but always satisfying. In this book, Thelin brings Wolfert and her work to a new audience. Lucky us.

Israeli Soul by Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook

I want to cook everything in this book. And I will… after I read every word about the authors’ adventures in Solomonov’s birthplace.
