You know how some people are obsessed with stamp collections or fantasy football teams? Well, we're obsessed with cookbooks. Here, in Books We Love, we'll talk about our favorites.
Today: A whole slew of cookbooks we're excited about this fall. BONUS: We're giving away cookbook packages to two lucky readers.
In case you hadn’t noticed, we’ve started talking -- and writing -- about cookbooks a little differently recently. We’ve been reviewing them, more or less, writing about the books we love and why we love them.
We hope that this will serve you -- home cooks, buyers of cookbooks, lovers of words and pictures and stories and recipes -- better. We want Food52 to be a place where you will come to find out about the latest titles, to share stories of your favorites, and to fill us in on what you love about cookbooks. If nothing else, this column -- Books We Love -- is a scrappy but enthusiastic start.
October is a huge month for cookbooks. Try to keep track of them all and you’ll find yourself with a full-time job and a calendar that’s more ink than paper. So we’ve been trying to fill you in on the ones we’ve clutched most tightly to our chests, the ones that brim with the most post-its. Today, we've compiled a list of of titles that we’re particularly interested in this fall -- so you can take a look yourself, or let us know what we missed, or just straight-up disagree with us completely.
So, herewith, a list of a few of the books we think are most deserving of your shelf space and brain space. (As is our policy, we’ve linked to Amazon for each book here, but we encourage you to swing by your local bookstore, if only for the human interaction and the new book smell.)

Hey, readers! We're giving away two cookbook packages, to share some of our favorite new books and get you cooking this fall. To enter, tell us in the comments: What's the cookbook you use the most? We'll choose winners this Friday, October 17th; unfortunately, we can't ship internationally.
