    My 11 year old neice is after a veggie cook book for Christmas. I think it should be nice home cooking, reasonably easy but not just for children as her parents are both good cooks and would also probably cook from it for her or with her.

    Any ideas?

    Agree with Hugh Fearlessly-Eatsitall recommendations. Also The Happy Pear have a couple of good books out. My veggie 20yr old likes them.

    The Hugh F-W book is excellent, as a is Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian Cookery.

    Anjum Anand's Indian Vegetarian Feast is great if she likes Indian Food.

    A bit of a digression, but I do think the Indians have the best meatless cookery.. A nice present might be a starter pack of spices, if you live anywhere near an Indian shop. Or you could buy twenty-thirty little plastic jars in which to ,keep them, all of which she can be labeĺled on top before putting them in a kitchen drawer or two.

    Buying spices from Asian stores works out cheaper than buying stuff from supermarkets (also tends to be freasher) and is even better value if you share the cost with a friend.

    A friend of mine recommended Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. Could be a little hard for newbies as there's not so much photos. But recipes are delicious and book itself have a good navigation: for instance, helpful icons for applicable recipes like soy free, gluten free etc.

    Thank you all for so many goid recommendations! I went with Rose Elliot in the end to give more ge eral recipes - not sure how much she likes Indian food. But I'll look back here for PCjr who is also veggie and an adventurous cook when buying cook books for her.

    Much appreciated, all!
