This month we’re continuing to look back at 2016’s favorite cookbooks, this time with rankings of the bestselling books from our favorite cookbook stores. It is always interesting to see how the lists from specialty stores compare with sales figures from industry data.
January also brings a record number of cookbook giveaways. Most of these books also feature recipe excerpts so you can get a feel for the book before you buy. You’ll also find a featured magazine with over 5,500 online recipes, author interviews, your favorite lists, and inspiration from our Valentine's Day Pinterest board. Happy cooking!

Bestselling cookbooks of 2016
Our friends at cookbook stores around the world provided us with their lists for the bestselling cookbooks of last year, and depending on the store, the results differ a good bit from US sales reported by the publishing industry data company, Nielsen.
While big names like Ina Garten dominated the mainstream market, other authors popped up in the specialty store lists. The memoir 32 Yolks by Eric Ripert topped a couple of lists and Small Victories by Julia Turshen also made a few appearances, but none of the stores had the same bestsellers. See all of the cookbook store lists on the EYB blog.
