2020 was the year the world turned to their kitchens to whip up joy and bake happiness — and it hasn't stopped since. For those of us who want to take our newfound cooking obsession to the next level, Top Chef stars such as host Padma Lakshmi and All Stars finalist Gregory Gourdet released new cookbooks that are brimming with meal inspiration.

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef Season 21 Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

With a focus on cuisines from around the world, readers can travel from country to country with just a flip of a page. Indulge in Mama Jo's Pecan Pie from Kelsey Barnard Clark's Southern Grit, or turn up the heat with Higados En Salsa Chipotle De Adobo from Gabe Erales' Mexican Food: The Ultimate Cookbook. There's something for every night of the week with this list of new cookbooks and never ending recipes!

These former cheftestants have made it easy for all of us, both experience and novice, to channel our inner Top Chef.

In a time when we couldn't travel, the pages of Tangy, Tart, How and Sweet: A World of Recipes for Every Day were able to transport us all over the world. After its original release date in 2007, the cookbook featuring recipes like Mexican Macaroni and Cheese and BBQ Korean Short Ribs was republished in March 2021.
