What a year it’s been for Jewish cookbooks (or cookbooks by Jewish authors)!

Whether you’re looking for a Chanukah gift for your favorite foodie or trying to give new life to your own repertoire, 2016 has a cookbook for you. Below you’ll find eight of our favorites, a suggestion about who might like them and a few recipes you definitely shouldn’t miss for Chanukah. (Where possible, we even gave you a link to the recipe on another site—we know what it’s like to wait for an Amazon package if you don’t have Prime…)

Happy Chanukah, and happy cooking (and cookbook-ing)!
