Starting a Cookbook Collection?

skigirl | Nov 1, 2006 12:02 AM

My friend wants to start doing more home cooking. Problem is....she lacks cookbooks. So, for her birthday, she wants cookbooks as gifts. Question is....which ones?

She's mid-30s, NYC urban sophisticate, smart, Cambodian (so Viet/Cambodian recipes not necessary), but very busy. Tell me 5 cookbooks she MUST have.

PS: Though not a deal-breaker, I am a fan of pretty pictures, and I think she may be, too.
