Every year, TV stations, magazines, newspapers, and other food media sources list their top cookbooks of the year, and every year our book list gets longer.
Luckily, Eat Your Books took the time to amalgamate all the lists and come up with the top 10 cookbooks of 2011, based off 195 media lists.
Momofuku Milk Bar by Christina Tosi and Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi tied for first this year, followed by Jacques Pépin's Essential Pépin and The Food52 Cookbook.
Odd Bits: How to Cook the Rest of the Animal came in at number five.
Ferran Adrià, Melissa Clark, and Heidi Swanson also made the top 10 list.
