[Xmas Filter] I'm doing my Christmas shopping, and I'm a bit stuck on what I need to get my mother. She likes culinary-cultural history books, preferably with recipes. Suggestions?

She's been really into these books for a while now, and I was hoping to get some suggestions. She's gone through Salt
, and all the other Mark Kurlansky books, as well as Lizzy Collingham's Curry
and David Kamp's The United States of Argula
She has also been a fan of food memoirs like Tender at the Bone
as well as travel books with a strong culinary bent. You get the idea. So, any suggestions?
