From culinary classics to the tastiest new releases, these seasonal reads will give you something to chew over...

1. Madhur Jaffrey's Ultimate Curry Bible

£25, eburypublishing.co.uk

If you only ever buy one curry recipe book, make it this one. It is meticulously researched, as well as tried and tested by a legend.

2. Pie by Angela Boggiano

£15.99, octopusbooks.co.uk

This shows you to master the art of pastry-making and turn even a frugal filling into a lavish, comforting pie, from calzone to steak-and-kidney pie.

3. The Autumn Fruits Cookbook

£4.99, cavalierpaperbacks.co.uk

This may be the best fiver you spend all year, with a host of quick, easy and inspired recipes.

4. Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi

£27, eburypublishing.co.uk

A stunning book that collates the writers' best Middle-Eastern recipes, but be prepared to hunt for some of the ingredients.

5. Jamie's 15-Minute Meals by Jamie Oliver

£26, penguin.co.uk

Jamie's 30-Minute Meals was the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever. Now he's halved the cooking time – will this beat his own record?

6. Slow Cooking by James Martin

£20, quadrille.co.uk

Every recipe includes an hour or more of cooking or marinating time. Yet they require minimum effort; the oven does all the work.

7. Nigelissima by Nigella Lawson

£26, randomhouse.co.uk

Nigella's recipes are full of shortcuts and delicious, making her books bestsellers. This one turns to Italian food following her latest BBC series.

8. Michel Roux: The Collection

£25, quadrille.co.uk

The chef's 250 favourite recipes are not for the faint-hearted – think poussins scented with ginger and wild mushroom cappelletti.

9. Kitchen Diaries II By Nigel Slater

£30, 4thestate.co.uk

Britain's best-loved food writer and presenter has come up trumps again with this second volume of his acclaimed book.
