Journalist Julia Moskin writes, “A cache of at-home guides by high-flying chefs arrived in 2011: “The Family Meal: Home Cooking With Ferran Adrià” (Phaidon, $29.95); “Heston Blumenthal at Home” (Bloomsbury, $60); “Molto Batali: Simple Family Meals From My Home to Yours” by Mario Batali (Ecco, $29.99); “My Family Table: A Passionate Plea for Home Cooking” by John Besh (Andrews McMeel, $35); and “Home Cooking With Jean-Georges: My Favorite Simple Recipes” by Jean-Georges Vongerichten (Clarkson Potter, $40).

“As a cookbook, “The Family Meal” has several nifty features. All the recipes have been scaled to serve 2, 6, 20 and 75 people; that flexibility is rare, and helpful. Each recipe is laid out in a kind of stop-motion photography style, with balloons of text, and each is presented as part of a complete menu.”

Cookbooks by chefs, tailored to a home kitchen and family audience, sound like ideal holiday gifts if cooking is your passion! (Feel free to share the NYTimes article with Santa to add to your wish list.)
