Every month, Toronto’s Cookbook Store shares their bestsellers list, compiled by manager Alison Fryer, with us. The November top-sellers, says Fryer, were an eclectic bunch: “a little Canadian, a little Middle Eastern, a successful food blogger, a TV personality, a chemist, and a dash of baking rounded out with healthy cooking.”

There are some pretty great gift ideas here, people. For example, I would really like No. 2, 3 and 7.

2. Jerusalem, by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimia

3. Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, by Deb Pereleman
