The Holiday Season


It’s no coincidence that the darkest, longest nights of the year bring some of the biggest, most sumptuous celebrations of the year. Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve bridge the gap between the harvest plenty and the scarcity of the long cold months. The later three feast days find¬†their roots in the Winter Solstice, the turning point in the calendar after which the days start to lengthen.¬† To celebrate the season, we offer a short list of interesting and enjoyable books about food and drink, including dining guides, cocktail manuals, fine press editions of great food writing, signed books, classic children’s cookbooks, and more.Remember that in addition to the rare and unusual books we stock, we carry a large selection of contemporary new cookbooks, both domestic and imported, and are happy to ship anywhere in the world.We look forward to seeing many of you over the coming weeks and in the New Year, and we really do appreciate your continued interest and support.
