The woman knows a good cookbook. For more than 30 years, Alison Fryer helped connect people with great books for food lovers at her shop, The Cookbook Store. She continues the conversation with food lovers by organizing author and chef events through her website. And, having cottaged for 15 years, she also knows what recipes work at the lake. We asked for her top picks of the season’s bounty for cottage bakers and cooks, and here’s what she served up:

Anna Olson tempts us with her favourites in Bake with Anna Olson from her wildly popular television series. Olson taps into her professional training to teach the beginner baker how to make classic New York cheesecake, while at the same time appealing to those looking for new challenges, such as the glorious croquembouche.

Those bakers seeking more of a French twist will gravitate to Bobbette & Belle. Allyson Bobbitt and Sarah Bell are the dynamic duo behind the shop in Toronto of the same name. Their creativity gives us wonderful, innovative temptations from mini blueberry hand pies or cinnamon pull-apart bread to double chocolate fleur de sel cookies—decadent without being too fussy for the cottage.

Daphna Rabinovitch is a baker at heart. Her new book The Baker in Me is an engaging tome, perfect if you only want one baking resource to leave at the cottage. I was hooked when I discovered 13 recipes for scones! An obvious labour of love by Rabinovitch, the book reads as if she is watching over your shoulder as you cook. Easy recipes that all the family can make and enjoy. And for those who love to read cookbooks on a rainy day at the cottage, this one wraps you up in a big hug!
