The other day, my husband and I went out to dinner with another couple; after dinner, we all decided to stop in the grocery store for a few things. The other couple are not married and do not live together, which is why this question is posed just about the man. While discussing the parsley that he had started already (he has a great garden), I asked if he had ever grown basil and made pesto. He said he hadn't grown basil and didn't know what pesto is, that he doesn't really know about a lot of different foods, he's just a meat and potatoes guy.
So....I thought that it might be nice to give him a cookbook that branches out a little, but won't intimidate him. I would send him to this website, but he doesn't really use computers. Is this a good idea? If so, what would be a good cookbook?
