Cookbook Gift Guide 2009

3 of 13
Stéphane Reynaud, author of Pork & Sons, has turned out a massive but lighthearted 480-page cookbook on French food that offers much more than recipes. There are French songs, sidebars on regional specialty products, photos of the people and places, and funny illustrations of stuff like types of cigars and how to confit a duck.
