How to choose cookbooks for Christmas presents

The kind of food we eat and love to cook says a lot about us.

A well-chosen cookbook should reflect your loved one's lifestyle, diet and personality. If it does, it will become a well-worn reference manual, used for inspiration and guidance. A student will appreciate simple recipes that can be made on the cheap, while a gluten-free cookbook can be a breath of fresh air for someone who may feel frustrated by their diet limitations.
