Can anyone recommend a really nice cooking book for my brother? He is 25 and loves to cook (and he does it really well!)
He has a fair few books in his collection already, and I'm looking for something to add to it this christmas as he has requested new cooking books.
I get really annoyed with books put out from chef's that include either a list of ingredients as long as your arm or a host of ingredients that you have to go to special places to procure (you can't just buy them from Woolies!) so I'm looking for something that avoids this as much as possible.
Tried and tested books would be best- books you have in your collection that you pull recipes from time and time again, whether it's written by a famous chef, Womans Weekly or the CWA (Ok, I am not sure if he would appreciated a CWA book actually!)
