I want to get a few cookbooks for my friend who is getting married. She has no clue on cooking. (Unlike me:) When I give her a recipe I have to put exactly every last step. She is trying to learn, so I don't know which ones to give her. I was thinking about a Marcela Hazen, but I still think that is too advanced for her. I feel like Giada's books are easy for her to comprehend.
What do you suggest? Thanks!!
