**UPDATE:** The winner of the set of 10 cookbooks is:

**#4,156 – Danielle M:** *“Baking Illustrated is my favorite this year! This giveaway is awesome! I am also a cookbook addict!”*

Congratulations, Danielle! Be sure to reply to the email you’ve been sent, and I’ll get your cookbooks shipped out to you!

I am a certified cookbook addict; I can’t help myself when it comes to buying new one. I eat up the “best of” lists, the James Beard and IACP winners, and am always adding to my wish list. As a result, I have more than 130 cookbooks lining my shelves. Each has a special place there, but some (both old and new) are hands-down favorites. It was an excruciating task, but I narrowed down my collection to 10 of my most favorite cookbooks, and am giving away copies of all 10 to one lucky reader! Continue reading below for details on how to enter!
