Need Help Choosing Cookbooks...

Juniper | Jan 26, 2005 07:56 AM

My friend's birthday is coming up this weekend and I would like to get her a cookbook, as she is an avid cook/baker. Specifically, I would like to get her some innovative cookbooks about vegetarian cooking and/or cooking with grains. I have done a little bit of research over the internet and have the names of some cookbooks that look promising. However, I'm looking for testimonials from fellow chowhounds regarding these books, or if you can recommend a book that's not on this list I would also be appreciative of that. Thanks in advance for your help!
