About a month ago, I began to notice the “best of 2011” lists being published on websites and blogs, and I bookmarked them to do a little unscientific survey. The opinions are varied, and I thought it would be interesting to see which book is first on each list. I also wanted to see which book shows up the most on all of the lists, regardless of its position.



Which books were mentioned most frequently on these lists? Several books ended up on five or six different lists.



What was your favorite cookbook of 2011?
