7 New Cookbooks to Get You in the Mood for Fall Cuisine

Fall is my very favorite cooking season. The plentiful availability of apples, squash, root vegetables and the last of nature’s summer bounty make for a gorgeously diverse and delicious meal plan. Add in all the holidays at this time of year, and it’s hard not to feel inspired to do some comfort cooking.

The weather may be slow to catch up with the calendar this year, but even if the days are still warm, the gardens and grocery stores are definitely feeling like autumn. So take advantage of the start of the new food season, and help yourself to these recommendations for the most inspiring new cookbooks available for fall. Bon appétit!
