This is part two of my interview with Eric Cimino, chef of Luca D'Italia; part one of our chat ran yesterday.

What's the best food- or kitchen-related gift you've been given? I love getting new cookbooks, especially the odd, quirky ones, and I'm always searching for older, collectible, illustrated books on herbs and vegetables. Right now, my favorite cookbook is Manresa: An Edible Reflection.
