The season's latest cookbook crop is in full bloom, and we can't wait to dig into big-time BBQ buff Aaron Franklin's meaty manifesto; get lost in Benu chef Corey Lee's intricate, beautiful restaurant recipes; and make pasta and gnocchi with our hands with a little help from Marc Vetri and Jenn Louis.

Check out the 21 must-have cookbooks of spring and a recipe for a salty-sweet brittle from Christina Tosi's new book, Milk Bar Life, the perfect snack for all that reading. Crack open our newly updated spring bookshelf.
