<<< Has anyone seen a depiction of a grater such as would be used for nutmeg or
galengale? The new person in my barony who is going to town on recipes asked
me about them (vice a mortar & pestle) and I thought, since I was going to
Pennsic and she wasn't, that it would be a cool gift to keep an eye out for
and bring back to her. 

And then I thought, "I wonder what I should be looking *for*?">>>

I think we've had some discussion of period nutmeg graters before. You might check this file in the PLANTS, HERBS AND SPICES section of the Florilegium:

For modern graters, I really like my two Microplanes. I use the smaller one, with smaller teeth, for nutmeg and it does a quick, clean job of it.
