Sabor: Flavours from a Spanish Kitchen by Nieves Barragán Mohacho (£25, Fig Tree)

As the former head chef of Barrafina in London, Nieves Barragán Mohacho is an expert on the food of Spain. In Sabor, she shares the recipes for food she likes to cook at home – Basque family classics with plenty of hearty flavour. Think big stews of chorizo and potato, fresh clams in piquant salsa verde, braised Iberico pork ribs and baked cauliflower with salted almonds, chilli and shallots.

Yemek by Isabel Lezmi and Lisa Rienermann (£19.99, Weldon Owen)

Including everything from early breakfasts to late-night snacks, every one of the sixty-five recipes in Yemek brings Turkish cuisine to life with beautiful photography, easy to follow recipes and a look at the country’s foodie culture.

The Savvy Cook by Izy Hossack (£14.99, Mitchell Beazley)

Izy Hossack is known for her fuss-free, full of flavour vegetarian recipes, and her latest book contains 160 of them. Every dish clearly states whether it is vegan or gluten-free too, which makes it easy to spot recipes suited to a particular diet, and the thrifty cook is kept in mind, making the most of affordable ingredients and getting the most out of them. Try making ricotta gnocchi with pesto and courgettes, a lazy potato hash or a lemon blueberry drizzle cake.
