If anyone has a cook on their Christmas shopping list, and is looking for an interesting cook book to give them, try La Bonne Cuisine de Madame E. Saint-Ange. It is an old French cookbook that was recently translated by my uncle Paul Aratow, an amazing chef in his own right, and the original chef de cuisine at Chez Pannise. It's a huge book, and it covers everything you'd ever want to know about French cooking and then some. It's been getting AMAZING reviews and I think there will be an article about it in the New York Times this Sunday.
