Cook These Books was founded with a clear mission to provide in-depth, genuine cookbook reviews.

Despite the volume of cookbooks published and sold each year there are very few resources that guide people towards quality. Instead of providing a critical prospective, many other publications simply reword press releases or engage in other superficial attempts.

Our reviews are different.

We spend a lot of time with each book we review. We cook widely from the book. We think deeply about the design and context of the book. We do not review every book we come across.

Put simply, we care about cookbooks.
