Any good cookbook ideas for bean cookery for a gift?

karykat | Dec 9, 2011 02:12 PM

My significant other (and personal chef!) has just become interested in cooking beans.

So he made a fantastic dish with white beans that were cooked in chicken broth (or maybe it was turkey broth) that had so much flavor. We just loved it.

And he cooked a Jacques what's his name lentil dish that had a lot of cilantro in it that was different from the usual and very good.

So I thought I'd get him a good bean cookbook, maybe with an assortment of some different beans for a holiday gift,

Does anyone have any good book recommendations?

I see that one is due to come out early next month called Bean by Bean by Crescent Dragonwagon.
Does anyone have anything else by her?

Here's the info on that one:

Or other good thoughts?
