People tend to think cookbooks are a thing of the past. We have the internet to use for free recpies, so what’s the need for books? But we believe that they’re wrong.

Cookbooks are more than just a list of recipes. At the heart, they are about food culture, about celebrating and sharing culinary ideas.

We listed cookbooks as part of the essentials items each kitchen needs and even ranked our favorite books everyone should own.

But we like a good avocado cookbook for slightly different reasons. The we appreciate a focus, around cookbooks that center around a niche topic and don’t just try to give us every recipe under the sun to try out.

This is why we love our avocado cookbooks. They are simple, to the point, and contain various ways to eat our favorite fruit; the avocado!

Here are some of our favorite avocado cookbooks that we highly recommend you try.
