The Best Of Female-Written Themed Cookbooks

A themed cookbook is always a fun gift to receive, whether someone else has gotten it for you, or you’ve grabbed one for yourself. These days, there are cookbooks that follow the theme of just about anything.

Some television shows or movies will release their own official cookbooks, while other cookbooks have been created unofficially by fans who are also into cooking.

Below, we have listed 12 of our favorite themed cookbooks, all written by female chefs. From television shows, to video games, to specific locations – there is a cookbook here for everyone!
