The holidays are fast approaching — and it just so happens that 'tis an active season for celebrity chefs to release new cookbooks. Today's best celeb chef books teach lasting techniques that can be applied beyond their specific recipe offerings, and even give you a glimpse into their personal lives and how they like to eat and feed others. So if you want to know how to prep food like Ina Garten, make the dish that practically raised Chrissy Teigen, or or discover how to drink just like first-time cookbook author Snoop Dogg, you're in luck! Here are some of our favorite new celebrity cookbooks to pass along as gifts.
