The holiday season is right upon us and it’s a great time to be creative in the kitchen. This time of year always brings with it great food and good friends. Whether you are reviving a favorite family recipe (here’s one of mine), sharing an ethnic specialty, or basking in the joy of winter produce, food always adds to the holiday celebrations. It’s also a time for exchanging gifts, and I have some great last minute holiday gift ideas for all the foodies on your list, or maybe as gifts that Father Christmas can bring for you!
- Les Fruits: Savory and Sweet Recipes from the Market Table: My latest book is all about fruit: 240 mouth-watering pages filled to the brim with new recipes that show cooking with fruit in a new light; from a multitude of delicious salads such as Apple, Fennel and Watermelon Radish or Citrus Salad with Avocado Vinaigrette, to main courses featuring succulent dishes such as a Roasted Duck with Apples, Parsnips and Leeks or Citrus Salmon, to a myriad of desserts such as an Eton Mess, a Pear and Pomegranate Pavlova or perhaps an Apple and Pear Strudel; all of these dishes celebrate fruit in all its guises.
- Gift Sets: Food just tastes better when prepared and presented in appealing ways. We have a variety of salad bowls, salt sets, olive oil sets and more, all combined in thoughtful packages that will delight any serious cook.
- Bags: Shop my collection of attractive and eco-friendly market linen and jute bags.
- Herbs and Spices: Enjoy a tasty addition to any spice collection. Seamless combinations of herbs and spices to season fish, vegetables and more. If you can’t choose just one, then try the set of nine blended herbs and spices to find your favorite. The set of nine is also available wrapped in a charming tea towel.
There is so much more on the Pascale’s Kitchen website that you are going to love—salts and peppercorns, olive oils and vinegars, teas and jams, wooden and ceramic items, salt cellars, linens, and thoughtfully coordinated gift sets.
Happy Holidays and Bon Appètit!
