They organize yoga retreats, and the whole atmosphere emanates a spirituality that captures you from the first moment.

Hurley’s Hits • The Joy of Cooking, Irma S. Rombauer. Time-honored recipes for every level of cook, and a beloved apple pie. (My Dad gave me my inscribed copy.) • In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite, New York Times columnist Melissa Clark.
