With the rise of Pinterest, and food sites and apps such as Yummly, and those time-lapse videos on Facebook, how often do you pull out a good recipe book?

I love coffee table books and cookbooks, with beautiful and colourful illustrations and photos. With celebrity and Food Network chefs and personalities coming out with cookbooks every week, it’s a challenge to choose a few that you’ll actually use.

DK Canada offers some fantastic cookbooks for every taste. With comprehensive wine encyclopedias and clear, easy-to-follow cookbooks, DK’s selection of  illustrated epicurean titles will be sure to please your favorite foodie.
