Gift Guide: For the Foodie

Posted By on Fri, Dec 11, 2009 at 12:00 PM

Today's gift guide is for the resident foodie in your life. Like Priscilla Tsai, our online producer and food blogger for, who can eat anything and everything and still look fab. Here are her top five choices for gifts this year.

Vosges Red Fire Toffee: I LOVE THIS STUFF! This caramel toffee is like crack. Sweet, salty, and slightly spicy toffee spiked with ancho and chipotle chillis and cinnamon, drenched in dark chocolate and spicy chopped pecans. ($20)

Onion Goggles: Because crying in the kitchen isn't cute ... especially when you are cooking in front of guests. ($22)


Vietnamese Style Coffee Filter: Make your own Vietnamese coffee with this simple filter. Let the coffee drip over a few tablespoons of condensed milk, pour it all over ice, and you've got yourself a cheaper and better-than-Starbucks iced latte. ($3.25)

Pizza Stone: Don't have a brick oven in your house? Neither do I. But a heavy-duty pizza stone will cook your homemade (and frozen) pizzas to perfection with a nicely browned crust – no more soggy pale crusts! ($42)


MU Kitchen MUbamboo Dish Towels: These towels have got it going on. They are lint free and streak free, super absorbent (7x its weight in liquid), and fast drying (the 10x faster drying time cuts down on the growth of bacteria.) They come in candy colors too to brighten up the kitchen. ($28.05)
