Some dear friends of mine are getting married, and I want to give them a couple of wonderful cookbooks as a present. I am in love with Nigel Slater, so I was thinking about something of his, but his recipes either seem to stodgy (British) or too adventurous for this particular couple. The couple is quite different, so it is a bit of a challenge. The Mr. is from a hungry farm family, and the Mrs. is from a family of health conscious females. So, I am looking for a beginner cookbook, with healthy but filling and relatively simple fare; but, ideally something more exciting than The Joy of Cooking. Thanks, Hounds!
