Whether readers are at home or on the road this summer, we hope that this list of must-read cookbooks will keep everyone turning pages until Labor Day.

The Delaware Center for the Book, established in 2003, is a state affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. Today, there is a State Center for the Book in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These Center for the Book affiliates carry out the national Center's mission in their local areas, sponsor programs that highlight their area's literary heritage and call attention to the importance of books, reading, literacy and libraries.
The State Centers for the Book linked by US Route 1, which extends from Fort Kent, Maine, to Key West, Florida, are joining together to promote books that illuminate important aspects of their states/commonwealths for readers traveling this major and meandering highway.
The Delaware Center for the Book asks readers to take a short detour into Delaware on their way from Pennsylvania into Maryland and discover new recipes from Delawarean Valerie Bertinelli.
