My mom (an omni) recently came back from a trip to Italy... so all she talks about is Italy, Italy, Italy.
She's never expressed an interest in my veganism... she tries to prepare a dish for me at family gatherings (typically the ubiquitous fruit salad), but it's only a half-hearted effort. I'm the "strange" one, so she's more worried about what other people want to eat. Also, she usually expects me to bring my own dish, which I do because it's easier.
She needs to get healthier, and she's expressed an interest in healthy eating, but she would never become veg*n. She does like to experiment with recipes and cooking, but on her own terms.
My question: Is The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen cookbook a good gift idea, or a bad gift idea?
