As a chef who loves to host elegant gatherings, I have just about every food and entertaining gadget you can think of. So when it comes to gift-giving, I recommend three classics:
- Books. I’m always looking for new and memorable ways to entertain family and friends. I find that books with beautiful photos, stylish ideas, and delectable recipes are great inspiration for my own creations.
- Personalized stemware or barware. These are so versatile and useful. The personalization can commemorate a special memory or event, and be funny, sentimental, or sweet.
- Individual dipping and serving bowls. People who cook gourmet meals usually serve several courses with various types of food, including dipping sauces, soups, and desserts. Having lots of bowls makes a multi-course meal easier and even more fun to prepare.
