If there’s one staple to be found in almost any avid cook’s kitchen, it’s a good food book. So for all the food fans and writers out there, ourselves included — we turn to the Food Book Fair. This year’s fifth annual event, located in New York City’s Wythe Hotel, offered everything from panel discussions to a class on visual storytelling using social media to a food styling and photography workshop, and lots more. It just wrapped yesterday, so to keep the party going, we’re highlighting four titles we’re dying to crack open from their “Recommended Reading” roundup. And if you’re hungry for more, head on over to the Food Book Fair site and take a look at their full list of suggestions!

Clockwise from top left:
  1. Bien Cuit: Turns out, making exceptional bread isn’t so hard if you know all the secrets — and that’s exactly what Chef and James Beard Nominee Zachary Golper reveals in this book.

  2. Food & Beer: Noma alums Daniel Burns, chef, and Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, brewer, made gastronomic waves when they opened up their respective restaurant and beer bar in a shared space in Brooklyn. Here they share their vision and recipes — available on May 16th.

  3. Koreatown: This New York Times bestseller offers not just an introduction to Korean ingredients and equipment, plus more than 100 recipes — but also to Korean-American communities across the country.

  4. The New Bread Basket: The slow food movement is finally making its way to the world of grains. Here author Amy Halloran sheds light on the entire ecosystem that’s making it happen, and what it matters.
