Heartoftheartichoke Today's food section features cookbooks that are great for the gifting. That's not just because the food writers are thinking about cookbooks -- some say that as many as 75% of cookbooks published each year come out in the months before the winter holidays.

The cuisines are all over the map, literally, from Norway to India to Mexico. And they're not just regional: One book is devoted to meat, another to pie. The list of 13 great cookbooks to give as gifts is:

"Heart of the Artichoke," by David Tanis
"One Big Table," by Molly O'Neill
"My Calabria," by Rosetta Costantino with Janet Fletcher
"Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine" by René Redzepi, photographs by Ditte Isager
"Southern Pies" by Nancie McDermott
"The Lost Art of Real Cooking" by Ken Albala and Rosanna Nafziger
"Primal Cuts" by Marissa Guggiana
Tartine Bread," by Chad Robertson
"Around My French Table" by Dorie Greenspan
"Bake!" by Nick Malgieri
"At Home With Madhur Jaffrey" by Madhur Jaffrey
"My Sweet Mexico" by Fany Gerson
"Ethan Stowell's New Italian Kitchen" by Ethan Stowell and Leslie Miller
