Christmas Is Coming

Dec 13th, 2010 by Gemma

It seems to be the time of year where Christmas is looming and you still haven’t found that perfect present for the one you love. Well, if that person happens to like cooking and food then you’ve come to the right place. Today’s aim is to give suggestions for foodie presents.

Lets start with cookbooks. Lots of people have been writing lists of their favourite cookbooks of 2010.

Gluten Free Girl and the Chef were among them, with their list including Around My French Table, The Heart of the Artichoke, Pig and of course, their own cookbook that came out this year.
Slashfood broke their list down into sections cute books for anybody, for serious cooks and for cooking voyeurs and readers.
Epicurious’ list highlighted the best in several catagories such as desserts, European and historical.
Serious Eats concentrates on books that a home cook would love to use.

Don’t want to get a book? That’s fine, that’s been covered too!

Brown Eyed Baker starts us off with her 5 favourite gifts. The cupcake pedestals are insanely cute!
The Purple Foodie has mostly food themed gifts, the apron is entertaining and the charms are cute!
Yumsugar’s suggestions are more of a practical nature. I will say, if the recipient loves cooking nothing will beat the silpat liner they mention!
A Nutritionist Eats includes truffle salt, bacon and chocolate.. Really, how can you go wrong!
And our very own local Fete and Feast has gifts from local producers and stores and even some foodie themed adventures!

If none of these strike your fancy you could always made a gift. There’s a fair few suggestions here so I’ll just list them with no additional comments.
