Gift for a Food Lover

orangepeel | Aug 6, 2009 09:57 PM

I'm looking for a good gift for a food loving partner. To add a twist, it can't be food itself or anything used in the preparation of food. Not being on her level of food fanaticism, I though I'd turn to the experts on this site for some help.

To get the ball rolling, my initial impulse was to find her a book, cook book or otherwise, that focuses more on the sensual and aesthetic pleasures of food. Pretty pictures, great stories, interesting biographies -- that type of thing. Great recipes would be a plus, but that's more of a secondary goal.

So, any favorite book tips you can pass along? Any gift you dream of getting or have had success giving to others? Any help would be much appreciated.
