Happiest holidays everyone! I’ve pulled together this culinary gift guide to help any of you shopping for the cooks in your family. All the items are things I’ve used (and loved!) in my own kitchen or are items made by producers I know and love – with a few wildcards thrown in for fun. I’ve tried to highlight a range here, emphasizing products made by hand, or small companies. Enjoy!Culinary Gift Guide - A Holiday Gift Guide for Cooks
Small Citrus Trees ($32-$54) – Four Winds Growers //
I have a collection of container-planted citrus (most purchased from Four Winds Growers) on our patio. It’s amazing to watch them change and grow throughout the year. Never mind the fruit, the smell of the blossoms is my favorite thing about them. My collection includes chinotto, rangpur lime, market lime, moro blood, kishu mandarin, and a few others. They sell non-citrus trees as well. 

Poudre des Bulgares (~$10)- Epices Roellinger //
A beautiful blend of palm flower sugar, sesame seeds, vanilla, flax seeds, saffron, and other spices. Perfect in yogurt, shortbread, baked oatmeal, crumbles and crisps.

Ristra Chile Garland ($230) – Flamingo Estate //
My kind of splurge. A 5-foot chile ristra strung by hand from New Mexico.

For Pasta Lovers //
Missy Robbins’ Pasta book ($37), and these brass pasta tools.

Original Egg Spoon ($310) – Permanent Collection //
A forever item. I was generously gifted this beauty not long after we moved to LA and I use it constantly, a few times a week, for perfect eggs for breakfast sandwiches. It’s also the first thing we pack throughout the year when we go camping.

Gjusta Coffee Box ($98) – Gjusta Goods
For the coffee lover. A pair of sweet ceramic mugs along side Common Room Roasters Gjusta blend.

Ankarsrum Original Mixer ($699) //
For the serious home baker. I invested in an Ankarsrum last year after burning up the motor in my long-time mixer. I wanted something with more capacity, more power, and I liked the all-clear top loading access to the mixing bowl. It’s a bit quirky, and takes a bit of time to get to know, but I love mine. I’ve found the Ankarsrum group on FB to be helpful.

Brass Cake Server ($150) – Kneeland Co. //
One of the treasures I brought home from my last trip to Jaipur was one of these beautiful brass cake servers now available at Kneeland Co.

For flower-loving cooks //
Edible Flowers ($32) – I contributed a chamomile miso soup recipe to this beautiful deep-dive volume on edible flowers by Monica Nelson.

Nested Indigo Bowls ($350) – Silvia Song //
I miss seeing Silvia and her beautiful work around the San Francisco Bay Area. We wold run into each other at various holiday markets and events throughout the year. The pieces I’ve collected from her over the years are some of my most amazing.

To inspire all your 2022 parties //
Arty Parties – the new Julia Sherman book.

This Kitchen in Procida – Sotheby’s //
Dare to dream ;). On our last trip to Italy we made a day trip on the ferry from Naples to Procida. It was incredibly charming and I’ve been daydreaming about life and the candy-colored seaside houses there ever since. I stumbled on this listing a couple months back and can’t get get over it – scroll to the kitchen: photo 6 of 21. Also omg the tile!

Brass Masala Dabba ($125 – $285) – Diaspora Co. //
I love my masala dabba a lot. I even take it with me when we’re out in the Airstream so that I have an edit of my favorite spices along for the ride. There are a number of ways to approach this – if you already have spices, you can get an empty masala dabba, Working from scratch? You can build-your-own set. And you can buy a katori set here if needed.

For Gluten-Free Bakers //
The book to gift any gluten-free bakers in your life – Cannelle et Vanille Bakes Simple
($32)

The Artist Capsule ($150) – Brightland Co. //
A beautiful four-pack of Brightland olive oil with special labels – lemon, chili, basil, & garlic.
