A rather expensive one is  The Herbalist in the Kitchen (The Food 
Series) (Hardcover) by Gary Allen 
Would something like Jill Norman's Herbs & Spices: The Cook's Reference or
The Encyclopedia of Herbs, Spices, & Flavorings (Hardcover) by Elisabeth 
Lambert Ortiz   
It depends a great deal on what she wants to do with her herbs, such as 
potpourris,  teas, preserving, just cooking them
fresh in dishes??
