Best of Boston

1998 Best Bookstore, Cookbooks

New England Mobile Bike Fair

Nobody has a more luscious selection of cookbooks than this mammoth warehouse on the Newton/ Needham line. Your 15-year-old just became a vegan? Hosting 60 people for Indonesian rijsttaffel? Next aisle. The shelf for French cookbooks alone is 12 feet long; a tour of the 7-foot-high shelves is a foodie’s armchair trip around the world.
