Q: A friend of mine recently eliminated dairy from his diet for health reasons. He's a novice cook, so I'd like to get him a cookbook with easy, non-vegan, dairy-free recipes. Any suggestions?

Editor: The cookbook Japanese Farm Food is pretty light on the dairy and was one of my favorite cookbooks from this past year. It's also a nice introduction to Japanese cooking and good for someone learning to cook:
• Japanese Farm Food by Nancy Singleton Hachisu
Readers, what cookbooks do you recommend? Any specifically dairy-free cookbooks you know of? Or really good books for beginners?
