Cookbook / Book recommendation?
« on: October 23, 2010, 09:19:55 PM »
I'm not sure where this should go so if it needs moving please do, mods.  Thanks!

I'm looking for a good, upscale book on making homemade gifts of food to give as a Christmas gift for my tenant. I bought her the new one from Sur la Table called Gifts Cooks Love but need one more. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm searching Amazon but haven't found anything that appeals. I'd like it to be recently published as well.

TIA

There are several good canning books out there (I like the Ball Blue Book and Blue Ribbon Preserves.  Those are the two (out of the dozen and a half or so that I own, that I get out and use every year when I start canning.  However, that is pretty specific to one type of gift food.  I don't know that I can think of any offhand that are more 'general' in nature.  Sorry.

I don't know of any recently published, but the two that I use over and over again are from Company's Coming, "Gifts from the Kitchen"  http://www.amazon.com/Companys-Coming-Kitchen-Special-Occasion/dp/1895455693/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287923342&sr=8-1  and "Christmas Gifts from the Kitchen" http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Kitchen-Companys-Special-Occasion/dp/189689173X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287923342&sr=8-2

I also have the first one.  I'm not sure if I have the second, but I likely do, since I love the Company's Coming series.
