Say adieu to summer cocktails and pool parties and greet fall in Los Angeles with fall activities (did someone say hayrides and ghoulish galas?) and the season's top designer collaborations. If you're feeling a surge of back-to-school DIY energy, head into the kitchen with these fall cookbooks of recipes, from Cal-Med small plates to Korean-Mexican-only-in-LA munchies. They will inspire you to hit the books (or at least your next meal). These cookbooks are available for pre-order now—most will be released in early fall 2013.
