Gift Guide '10: THE CHEF

Dylan Gold's Chop Chop

Our next post is about gifts for the gourmand in your life. Whether your favorite cook is a seasoned professional or a beginner with a barbeque, we are the source for design-forward and inventive gifts for your in-house Colicchio. For the kitchen-saavy, it’s best to think outside of the box: Fabulous dishes or an imaginative flatware set can really make a delicious meal sing… and remember to never show up empty-handed to your holiday dinner parties! The host or hostess always enjoys a small gift in exchange for their culinary efforts.


Our personal favorite, the Jason Miller “Second” series ($89-$129) dinnerware adds elegance to any sweet or savory dish. Give your favorite Morimoto a gift that they can practice their technique with- like Dylan Gold’s Chop Chop ($190-$240) or the Swedish-designed Normann Knives ($81-$120). If your loved one is more of a sommelier than a cuisinier, Blomus has you covered with their Pawo Decanting Funnel ($25.20), which aerates and filters red wines. The Cerra Wine Vacuum Pump ($45) sucks the oxygen out of an open bottle of wine, slowing down the oxidation process, and therefore keeping the wine longer. For the professional chef, give them a trendy and chic way to carry their knives with Alice Supply Co.’s Striped Toolbox ($60).
