Is there a discriminating foodie on your gift list who seems to have everything?
We all love good food and getting together with friends over a drink, but some people seem to get a bit more enjoyment out of the process of preparing that food and drink than others. We affectionately call them Foodies. They are the ones who study cookbooks, have casserole dishes in every available size and shape, experiment with the latest cooking craze and, when eating at a 5-star restaurant, will critique a meal as if she is a college professor grading papers. Is there someone on your gift list this holiday season that fits this description? No need to fret, just check out this selection of gifts that are sure to please even the pickiest of your culinary-obsessed friends and family. From kitchen appliances to small stocking stuffers, you will find ideas for bakers, pit-masters, coffee-lovers, and more. If you are looking for that ideal gift for someone who is just getting established in their first kitchen, or for someone who seems to have everything, we’ve got just what you need.
