Now that the sorry thread of insulted gift-receiver has met its well-deserved end, I'd like to ask fellow hounds how they chose cookbooks to give as gifts. Do you give books on cuisines you're sure will please, or ones that might nudge a friend in a new direction? Personally, I love to get a cookbook gift from someone who has cooked from that book and loved it. (Even more appreciated are favorite recipes scribbled on food-smeared bits of paper.) What's you approach?
