Gift Guide 2016: For the Chef


I don't know about you, but I have a lot of chefs on my Christmas list (my husband included, and honestly most of his family), not to mention that I have become more and more of a home chef over the years. So this list is for the wannabe chefs and foodies on your list. Bon appétit. 

And in case you missed it, here are the other gift guides so far:
For the Home
For Your BFF
For Your Husband (or Brother)
Stocking Stuffers

Top Row: 1. A chef can never have too many wooden utensils. I love the colored handles of this Now Designs Bamboo Utensils Set. // 2. What chef wouldn't love a Homemade Ravioli Kit? Uncommon Goods also sells a DIY Tamale Kit and Sushi Kit.
Second Row: 3. I'm hoping my husband is reading because this is on my list: Cuisinart Tazzaccino Milk Frother. It would make homemade lattes that much fancier. // 4. A pretty salt and pepper grinder is a necessity for any home chef. Willow & Everett Salt and Pepper Grinder Set. // 5. I'm of the opinion you can never really have too many serving items, especially for cheese. I love this one: Gold Merry Marble & Wood Board and Spreader Set. // 6. I can't even with this BIA Cordon Bleu Milk Container. // 7. Out with the old brown paper bag and in with a sleek white bento box: Takenaka Lunch Bento Box.
Third Row: 8. An electric kettle that looks old school, and I love the color. KitchenAid Electric Kettle in Pistachio. // 9. You can't go wrong with a beautiful copper bowl like this one: Mauviel M Passion Copper Egg Beating Bowl is so beautiful. // 10. So most of the items on this list are approachable and for the everyday chef, but the Joule Sous Vide takes it up a few notches. Apparently it helps you cook everything, from steak to crème brûlée perfectly no matter what. 
Bottom Row: 11. Phaidon Where to Eat Pizza. Who wouldn't want this book? // 12. I adore Jenny Rosenstrach's blog, and her book How to Celebrate Everything: Recipes and Rituals for Birthdays, Holidays, Family Dinners, and Every Day In Between is on my own wish list (but would make a great gift as well). // 13. Another book that doesn't warrant a lengthy description but would be a good addition to any chef's cookbook collection: Egg. // 14. Created in collaboration with Italian food emporium Eataly, this cookbook features 300 of the best contemporary Italian home-style recipes. Eataly: Contemporary Italian Cooking.
