A Gift Guide for Your Favorite Cook


I would consider myself a cook. I am not an expert but I cook, I love to cook, and I enjoy learning about cooking. Someone like me needs a gift list. I always see things out there and think…hmmm…wouldn’t it be awesome to receive that? So, I figured I would round some of these items up and make a gift list out of them!

1. Williams-Sonoma DIY Dijon Mustard

This gift is from W & S’s new (er) Agrarian Gift Series. I can honestly think of a bunch of products from this line that I love but this one I found fairly unique. It would double as a great hostess gift too!  Or there is the MYO Apple Cider kit and the MYO Feta Cheese (YUM!). A fun one for those cooks that are always willing to try something new. 

2. Handmade Pepper Mill from RockyTopBob Wood Designs

What an awesome, unique gift with an amazing handmade story behind it. It doesn’t stop at pepper mills, Rocky Top Bob crafts wooden wine stoppers as well!

3. Farm Animal Cutting Boards from Red Envelope

Ever since I had my new kitchen island built, I have been in the market for some good cutting boards. I have come across some pretty neat designs but these are some of my favorites!

4. Balsamic Vinegars and Olive Oils from The Tubby Olive

This one is from my hometown, Newtown, PA. The Tubby Olive is a shop right in downtown on State Street (where part of the movie Signs was filmed). Last year one of my dear friends brought me their Strawberry Balsamic and it was more than I could have ever imagined flavor wise. Oh it was amazing! I am sure everything else in there is fabulous as well!

5. Baking By Hand by A and J King

Beginner, intermediate, or advanced bread baker, it doesn’t matter. This cookbook is hands down one of my new favorites. I have used it numerous times since I reviewed it last month.  The Cinnamon Swirl Bread (recipe in my review) is amazing and I can’t wait to try out the focaccia recipe! Give your cook (or baker) the gift of learning how to make the best artisanal breads and pastries without a mixer!

6. Wood-Fired Handmade Mortar and Pestle by Mary Carol Perez

Her pottery is beautiful. For grinding spices, this is perfect for your cook! I also love her garlic peeler stone and storage jar as well. There is something here for everyone AND it is made in Oregon.

What kitchen accessory is on your wish list this year?
