Their review of the best cookbooks of 2010 includes offerings by local chefs Lisa Dupar, Ethan Stowell and Cynthia Nims.

But wait! There’s more to enjoy, as Nancy reveals her favorites from the French, Italian, Asian and Indian-inspired tables.

The 2o10 cookbook that's Nancy's greatest indulgent pleasure? Dorie Greenspan's “Around My French Table.”

These cookbooks are great gift ideas, even after Christmas has passed, because, as Dick reminds us, “It’s never too late for a good cookbook!”
