Cookbooks & Kitchen Items: My Top Picks for Gifting


The past three Fridays I have shared gift guides with my readers on Simple Bites. I wanted to showcase which tools help make my kitchen run smoothly, as well as provide inspiration for gift giving this holiday season.

From the first post:

“I’ve rummaged through the tool kit of many a professional chef. I’ve taken detailed inventory of a restaurant kitchen’s supplies. I’d rather shop for spatulas than shoes and I’ve probably cooked every day for the last twenty years. I’ve seen what lasts (my mother’s Le Creuset she received as a wedding present 35 years ago), I’ve seen what breaks (cheap blenders and espresso makers) and I’m ready to share my recommendations.”

So whether you are writing your own holiday wish list, or are looking for the perfect gift for the cook in the family, let these lists of cookbooks, tools and gadgets inspired from my personal kitchen be your guide.

  1. You are so right about what lasts and what doesn't. I am all about cook;s illustrated product reviews and i spend long hours in cookware stores just to look at products. I'm heading over to your recommendations now.

  2. You are amazing! Now I have some suggestions as to what to ask for for Christmas this year! It's always good to know what works and doesn't before actually buying. So thanks for the recommendations 🙂

  3. Wow! This looks great! I am so impressed!
