My co-host, Chef Dave Kocab, and I were both gifted some that made the list.

The majority of them highlighted books feature ethnic food.

In addition, I’ll share the most-circulated cookbooks in the Cuyahoga County Library system. Most of them are diet and lifestyle oriented.

We’ll also hear from a local author, Dr. Mahmoud Ghannoum, a professor at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals, whose book “Total Gut Balance,” was just released in December and is a best-seller among digestive health titles. It includes 50 recipes to help lose weight and achieve balance for digestive wellness.

Jeremy Umansky, of Larder: A Delicatessen & Bakery is also coming out with his first book this spring, Koji Alchemy. We’ll hear from him about that project and what the book has to offer.

Catch Taste Buds this and every Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. You can view it through the 19 News Facebook Live broadcast, our app or website. The show is also available on Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
