The Perfect Gift For: The Novice Cook

Having a good quality, all-purpose cookbook is essential for someone first learning to cook (and even for the seasoned vet).  A good one will provide background information about materials, storage, prepping, and how to improvise your own recipes based off the ones that are provided.  I learned off of The Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer (and have checked out the only copy in the Tufts library), but my personal favorite is a little more modern and readable, by Mark Bittman, either How to Cook Everything or How to Cook Everything Vegetarian (even for non-vegetarians, I think the recipes in the latter are more interesting and useful).  These are really great resources and a perfect distraction from whatever reading you have for class.
