Earlier this month we gave you a sneak peek into some of our favorite chef kitchens, and this week we’re giving some of our favorite cookbook authors the same treatment.

What’s most impressive to us about so many of these kitchens is that the authors, like Joy the Baker and Anna Watson Carl of The Yellow Table, not only develop their recipes in their home kitchens, but many of them also style and photograph the food for their books right there. Talk about a multitasking space!

  • Joanne Chang of Flour

    Boston-based baker and author Joanne Chang gave us a peek into her casual loft kitchen, full of light and smart organizational details.

  • Joy the Baker’s Venice Beach Kitchen: We’re incredibly impressed by how well Joy used the space in her bungalow in Venice, California. Of course, now that she’s moved to New Orleans, we’ll be eagerly awaiting a look at her new kitchen. See the full tour.
  • Melissa Clark of The New York Times: The brave woman that she is, Melissa Clark decided to remodel her kitchen right before her baby was born. Luckily the remodel was complete just in time. This might be the best use of storage space we’ve seen in a New York kitchen. See the full tour.
  • Cookbook Author Diane Morgan: With 17 cookbooks to its credit, this kitchen has definitely seen a lot of action. But with those amazingly expansive counters, who wouldn’t be inspired to cook here? See the full tour.
  • Josh & Maria of Two Peas & Their Pod: Not only do Josh and Maria run the site Two Peas and Their Pod, but they completely remodeled the kitchen in their Salt Lake City home to better fit their needs. Luckily, they did it before self-publishing their cookie cookbook. See the full tour.
  • Anna Watson Carl of The Yellow Table Kitchen: Anna’s first book comes out later this year, and we got a peek into her simple apartment kitchen that makes great use of vertical storage. See the full tour.
