These beautiful, well-tested, inspiring cookbooks by Western authors make wonderful presents on their own, but we’ve gone a step further. Each is paired with a related ingredient or tool, making an extra-thoughtful package
Tanya Holland’s book about her Oakland restaurant, Brown Sugar Kitchen, isn’t just a collection of outstanding recipes—like her famous fried chicken and feather-light, crunchy waffles. It’s a window into a wonderful, welcoming place where people of all backgrounds and persuasions sit together, eat, and become a community.
