In case you haven’t noticed, I love to cook. And weekends, shockingly enough, are when I get my chance to create in the kitchen!
The kitchen items listed here are incredibly useful and beyond that, I have developed a good deal of affection for them.
If you know someone who loves to cook — you, for example — these make great holiday gifts. So next time that special someone asks you what you want in your stocking this holiday season, here are some ideas…
I don’t think I’d make it through fall and winter without my immersion blender! There’s no better way to purée soups! Oh, and it’s a great way to emulsify salad dressings, too.
We all love to grill outside, but sometimes it’s fun (or necessary) to stay inside and get those wonderful smoky, charred flavors!
I just bought this, and I can’t wait to cook with it! Anyone who loves to cook will be excited to receive this. Trust me!
A tagine is a casserole dish used in North African cooking, most commonly in Morocco. Tagines are great for slow-cooking stews, and other “one-pot” comfort foods! (“Tagine” refers to the dish prepared in this vessel, as well.)
I have this book, Cooking at the Kasbah by Kitty Morse — it’s a perfect counterpart to the Tagine!
This is the best gift ever for someone who likes to bake cookies! Or make chocolate truffles . . . or even tiny meatballs!
Get your cooking friends organized in their kitchens! These bowls are the best for getting all of your recipe ingredients set up. Love them!
These are simply charming and adorable. Who wouldn’t want one!? I love all things Le Creuset!
Anyone who loves cooking will absolutely adore this skillet! Mine is always at the ready!
Cheese, chocolate, fresh ginger — there’s no other way to grate! Your foodie friends need one!
This is the easiest way to season to taste with salt!
I hope you have so much fun shopping for all of the people in your live who love to cook! For the love of food! Happy Holidays!
