Dear BookmanBeattie,

October signals a seasonal shift in the style of cooking in many homes, although you won't necessarily see that in the new releases since the month is dominated by books from famous chefs and restaurants. Of course, that also means there are plenty of swoon-worthy, inspirational books to be added to your shopping cart.

If your upcoming Halloween party has got you spooked, turn to our Halloween Pinterest board for fantastic last-minute ideas to make your celebration memorable. We've got plenty of giveaways and author interviews this month, plus your favorite lists and a few special events. Happy Halloween!

Chef & restaurant cookbooks dominate in October
No, it's not your imagination. This month's cookbook roundup (see more information below) is awash in cookbooks from chefs all over the world. Many of the books are lofty tomes filled with the chef's unique perspective on a particular culture's cuisine (like Enrique Olvera's Mexico from the Inside Out) or a particular food genre (like Tal Ronnen's Crossroads). Several of the chefs are James Beard or other award winners, such as Blaine Wetzel (Sea and Smoke). This trend has been building - has it reached its apex or does it still have room to grow?
