Our Top Cookbooks of 2018

Many feared the dogeared cookbook, long a staple in American kitchens, was a thing of the past as cooks have turned to the Internet to download recipes. Yet cookbook sales have remained steady and strong, with millions of sales as proof of the pudding. We sample the wide variety of some of the new and critically acclaimed cookbooks for our December selection of Bookmarked: The Under the Radar Book Club.

Guest:

Amy Traverso - Food editor at Yankee Magazine, co-host of WGBH's Weekends with Yankee and author of The Apple Lover’s Cookbook.
