Amazon lists best food books of 2012

This week, Amazon announced the Best Books of 2012, including two separate categories for voracious food readers.

At the top of the Cookbook category, we have Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust, Deb Perelman’s Smitten Kitchen and Nathan Myhrvold and Maxime Bilet’s Modernist Cuisine at Home.

Then, over in Food Lit, titles include Bee Wilson’s Consider the Fork and Bob Spitz’s Julia Child bio hit Dearie. Luisa Weiss’ My Berlin Kitchen also made the cut.

Amazon is offering all the “Best Books” at 40 percent off now through the end of the year.

What do you think should have made the list?
