These are the best, unique Mother’s Day Gifts For Moms Who Love to Cook. I should know because I’m a mom who indeed loves to cook, and love all of them. Okay fine, it doesn’t matter if you’re a mom or not — I think anyone into cooking would be elated to receive any of these. To be honest, I always tell my kids the best gifts are homemade. Even if it’s a card — if they make it, I love it. My mom used to say the same thing — even when I wasn’t a kid anymore. 🙂
That said, it’s super fun to give gifts! Mother’s Day is a lovely occasion to do so, and cooking gifts can be so much fun.
I love curating collections like this. All of these items are things I would guess most people — even who cook a lot — might not already have.
I only own one of them, the tasting spoon. Someone gave it to me a few years ago and it is the most used spoon in my kitchen. Details on that are below.
Let’s get started, shall we?
Gifts For Moms Who Love to Cook
and anyone else, too!
Salt Block Cooking ($13) and Majestic Pure Pink Himalayan Salt Block ($45)
Mark Bitterman is the foremost salt expert and his book, Salt Block Cooking includes 70 recipes designed for using this unique cooking tool. Using salt blocks is an enticing form of cooking with several benefits — it imparts healthy minerals to food, the salt flavor is complex yet subtle, it has excellent heat distribution, it holds temperatures for a long time, it doubles as a gorgeous serving platter, and more!
Le Creuset of America Enameled Cast Iron Balti Dish ($150)
This is as beautiful to serve in as it is to cook with! It’s a traditional, iconic cooking pot that’s used for making and serving the Indian-style curries for which it is named. The Balti’s curved sides and flat base ensure solid contact with the heat source. I would use this not only for curries, but for tons of other comforting, one-pot meals as well.
Le Creuset Set of 4 Mini Cocottes with Cookbook ($100)
I love serving individually prepared portions — I find it so comforting and cozy. Especially in these adorable Le Creuset Mini Cocettes! And this gift set comes with an excellent cookbook specifically for cooking with them.
Dalton-Ruhlman Large Offset Spoon ($8)
There’s no spoon I use more than this one. It’s specially angled to make basting, tasting, skimming, mixing and saucing faster and more efficient. Its angle allows for deeper dipping into a pot or a pan without tipping the spoon. It can also easily rest inside a pot without slipping down, and it’s pretty for serving, too!
Cookie Cups Mold ($15)
How cute are these!? I was at a party recently, and this was dessert — chocolate chip cookie cups with a vanilla milkshake inside. They’re easy to make with this non-stick pan/mold. The cavities are filled with cookie dough, pressed down with the corresponding inserts, and then baked. Once cooled, the inside is coated with chocolate and they can then be filled with mousse, ice cream, milk, or a milkshake. So fun for a dinner party!
6 Month Subscription of Exotic Fruit from Melissa’s Produce ($229)
Wouldn’t it be lovely to receive a stunning selection of the most delicious and unique fruit each month? (This can also be purchased as a 3 month or one year subscription.)
And there you have it! My favorite Gifts For Moms Who Love to Cook — and anyone else, too!
