My Aunt made the declaration that our family, instead of drawing names, was going to exchange cookbooks with a value of $25. A great idea....for about 1/2 of my family. For the other 1/2 it will be wasted money. I'd like to know if there are food related books out there that would be of interest to the non-chef. Could be a novel, fact book, whatever. Something besides a cookbook. Age range and lifestyles are so different, (24 yr old college student to 70 yr old retired grandfather) so I know I won't be able to please everyone. thanks.
