Your Photos: Cookbook Collections

February 13, 2014

Online recipes are kind of our thing. But that doesn't mean we're ready to give up cookbooks anytime soon. With their weighty pages and crisp images, cookbooks beckon us from the shelves of bookstores, begging to be brought home and leafed through.

In honor of The Piglet, our annual cookbook tournament, we wanted to see your packed shelves and your most earmarked volumes. Judging from your Instagram photos, it's obvious that you love cookbooks just as much as we do.

Want to get in on the fun? Keep an eye out for our next #F52Grams theme tomorrow -- and be sure to follow us on Instagram, too. 


The Piglet—inspired by The Morning News' Tournament of Books—is where the 16 most notable cookbooks of the year face off in a NCAA-style bracketed tournament. Watch the action and weigh in on the results!

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

laurenkodiack and I are cookbook soul sisters; I have all of her except the Kinfolk one.
