Christmas for Cooks

I’ll be on KFRU (in about 30 minutes!) this morning talking about Christmas gifts for cooks. Here are a few ideas I came up with.

  • Tools of the Trade
    • New spices – Let’s face it, yours are pretty old. You’ll be surprised what a difference buying smaller amounts of spices will make.
    • Stick blender – You don’t absolutely need one of these, but I find myself reaching for it regularly. You may be able to do a little research and find a better-reviewed one, but my Cuisinart Quick Prep is still going strong after 10 years.
  • Herbs in pots or fruit trees from Stark Bros.
  • Seed packets
    • Hit the hardware store (or gardening shop) and put together a custom basket of seed packets.
  • Grow light kit
    • Your loved one will be able to get a jump-start on their gardening (or just grow better herbs in the winter) this way.
  • World Harvest gift basket (cheese, olive oils, charcuterie from Volpi – available at most local grocery stores)
  • Hot sauce sampler
  • Cookbooks
  • Gift certs
  • Just cook someone you love dinner!
