This year, more than ever, we opened our pocketbooks to support local restaurants through takeaway and delivery. But when we weren't conquering a pile of pad thai or sipping to-go cocktails, many of us had to learn how to cook. Some of us for the first time. As we near the end of the year, we asked Time Out staffers to tell us about the best cookbooks they relied on to get them through 2020. As a surprise to no one, many of us leaned heavy on baking, learning how to craft the perfect sourdough loaf, killer banana bread and fudgy chocolate cake. Others quenched their wanderlust in the kitchen, trying their hand at dumplings, bibimbap, chai masala and fattoush. It's never too late to pick up one of the best cookbooks of 2020 and hunker down at home with some of the world's best cooks.
