Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cookingvia amazon.com

1st Anniversary: Paper

Cookbooks

A new cookbook is one of the best wedding anniversary gifts for getting inspired in the kitchen. As a gift to your spouse, it’s also a wonderful way to bond and learn how to work together! Plus, it really fits the bill for the paper anniversary. We love Samin Nosrat’s Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, the book that inspired the Netflix series. It’s a great volume for beginners and experienced foodies alike. If you have something more specific in mind, try one of our favorite regional cookbooks.
