    Welcome to Chef Talk. I'm going to move your request out of the Welcome Forum (it's just for introductions) to a Chefs' forum where it'll get the answers you're looking for.

    Enjoy the site!

    I think the ACF, http://www.acfchefs.org, sponsers an apprentice program that helps the master/mentor with that kind of stuff.

    If your aprentice has funds trouble, you should try to setup a payroll deduction plan for him to finance the purchase of the essiantial books.

    You should definatly encourage him to get:

    The Art and Science of Culinary Preperation by Jerad Chesser (Required reading for ACF certifications)

    On Food and Cooking by Harold Magee

    Culinary Artistry

    Larouse Gastronomique, La Repritoire de Cuisine, and a copy of Esscoffier if you cook that kind of stuff at work...
