A friend of mine is getting married soon, and my partner and I are getting her some bakeware from her registry. We thought it would be nice to put a good cookbook in the gift, as well and were hoping for some good recommendations.
The bride (my friend) is a vegetarian who enjoys cooking and loves all things Italy. The groom's not a vegetarian and I don't know if he cooks, but I figure even if he doesn't he'll reap the benefits of it all either way.
Anyway, any recommendations? We thought something baking related would be appropriate but it isn't absolutely necessary. I was thinking of "Dolce Italiano: Desserts from the Babbo Kitchen" after reading a few good reviews around here, but I don't know anything about the book myself.
