I do consider myself somewhat of a foodie. In other words, I love creating meals for my family, entertaining, baking as well as eating out at restaurants.
I put this list together thinking of things I have that love while some items might actually be on my wish list!
With further ado, here’s the gift guide for foodies:
When hosting a dinner, I love making a charcuterie board. I find that various cheeses, Italian meats, fruits, and nuts make great appetizers for my guests.
I totally love the natural look of Cookery Castle Extra large board, that live edge look that’s popular right now. And it’s great because it’s large enough you can style your food too!
The baker in your life will LOVE these silicone baking mats. Not only are they reusable and non-toxic, but they make cleaning up a breeze.
You can even pop them in the dishwasher! This affordable pack comes in various sizes to fit your baking pans.
Beeswax wraps are a great eco-friendly alternative to plastic wraps to cover food or to store those yummy leftovers. Also, these wraps are great and I have a drawer full of them at home to prove it.
It’s been well over a year since I’ve bought plastic wraps or baggies.
Take your foodie out on a road trip or a hike and bring your food with you in a wicker basket. This basket comes with everything you need for a picnic, including reusable napkins and utensils.
I think this would make a very romantic date if you bring some wine along!
Why not have accessible fresh herbs at your foodie’s disposal all year round with this indoor herb garden kit.
This starter kit comes with Genovese Basil, Curly Parsley, Dill, Thyme, Thai Basil, and Mint. These fresh herbs are always in season, always fresh, and always local! Can’t beat that!
Here are links to some of my favorite cookbooks. These books I recommend, I own and use ALL. THE. TIME!
I love the simpleness of the recipe in 5 Ingredients. Jamie’s recipes are quick to make and are so full of taste. OF all the recipes in this book, my favorite recipe is the Crazy Good burger. I will never eat a burger without blue cheese again!
Barefoot Contessa’s book is not as simple as the Jamie Oliver 5 Ingredient cookbook. In other words, it’s more for those who want to cook to impress and entertain. The recipes are so mouth-watering. I love the Tuscan Lemon Chicken recipe from this book.
Pro tip: Buy the kindle version and save a few dollars and trees!
I love Italian food, but since I’m a French Canadian, I learned to cook Italian somewhere other than at home. For instance, I learned to make Italian sauce from my friend/roommate years ago. For everything else, I learned from this cookbook by Giada. There are so many go-to recipes from this book. Above all, her Stuffed Tomatoes make top prize as my favorite recipe.
In conclusion, I hope my gift guide for foodies helped to get some ideas on what to get your food enthusiast! Are you a foodie yourself? What would you add to this list? Leave a comment below!
