My sister just moved into her first apartment and is settling into the kitchen quite nicely--I'd like to get her a great book, something like a cookbook with essays I suppose, that will introduce her not only to the cuisine of Italian cooking, but also the philosophy behind it--something that will teach her more about the general concepts than this or that recipe (although recipes are always a good thing for new cooks). Any suggestions?

(If only Mario Batali himself came in book form)
