We New Zealanders sure do love our cookbooks. A brief glance in any cookbook section of the store reveals a book for every possible occasion or taste. I’m planning to do a couple of posts on cookbooks: this one will be about covers, and the next one will focus on what’s inside.
The standard cover for a cookbook features, unsurprisingly, (a) food, or (b) a famous cook holding food.
There seem to be niche markets within the broader 'cook books' genre. Below I've selected three cook books primarily targeted at women, versus three primarily targeted at men.
