Gifts for the Foodies in Our Lives

My annual column in U.S. 1 devoted to holiday gift ideas for the cooks and gourmands in our lives is out! Here’s just a taste of what I recommend:

My favorite find from this year’s Fancy Good Show:

 This gift selection of farmstead cheeses from Cherry Grove Farm in Lawrenceville

And the new Canal House Cooking – all Italian this time! – from Lambertville’s Melissa Hamilton & Christopher Hersheimer

In addition to the 20 or so suggestions in the column, here are even more:

– A t-shirt or apron printed with “Hope is Delicious” from Jon Bon Jovi’s Soul Kitchen community restaurant in Red Bank

– Lidia Bastianich’s new book, Lidia’s Italy in America, which includes profiles of and recipes from six New Jersey farms, food producers, and restaurants. btw: some photos are by Christopher Hersheimer

– A sparkly, haute couture apron from Haute Hostess made from ball gown and cocktail dress fabrics. A splurge to be sure, but proudly worn by the likes of Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow

Happy shopping!
