At quarterlane we’re always excited to find out what people are reading, have read and want to read. Now that the holidays are fast approaching we thought we’d ask some inspiring friends to share book gift ideas and a recipe they love. We’re excited to bring you another holiday gift guide from our friend, photographer Tara Donne. The gorgeous photos here are hers. I can’t wait to try her Celeriac Potato Gratin recipe.

Tara: The New Food Lover’s Companion — every kitchen question answered without having to Google anything! I like getting real books dirty in the kitchen.
