The Best Cookbooks Of 2010

There's no shortage of Best Cookbooks of 2010 lists, so rather than pretending any one list has successfully captured every great cookbook of 2010 (they haven't), or asking you to trust just ours, we've pored over the best of the Best Cookbooks of 2010 lists. What follows are the Best Cookbooks of 2010, the HuffPost rendition: every cookbook must have been included in at least two of the following Best Cookbooks of 2010 lists:

With one exception to the rule: four cookbooks chosen by our humble publication's Food page (HuffPost Food Editor's Picks) but overlooked on these other lists were granted inclusion (or is that four exceptions?). It should go without saying that any one of these would make a fine holiday gift for the food lover(s) in your life.

And don't forget to check out the Best Cocktails-and-Spirits Books of 2010.
