Third Zuni. Very very good cookbook in that the recipes are very detailed and doable.
Other possibilities are:
Ad Hoc (recipes are pretty good, but portion sizes are enormous)
The French Laundry (cookbook is usable only if the giftee is an anal-retentive freak with a commercial kitchen, or doesn't like to cook at all but loves pretty pictures)
