SacFoodies Favorites – Holiday Gift Guide, Day 1
Even when you’re an adult, it’s fun to pour over catalogs and scratch out your Santa list. The fact that no one will ever see it, or that you might even have to be your own Santa, doesn’t spoil the fun of wishing for that perfect gift. We’ve compiled our foodie wish lists, along with some regional gift ideas, and we’ll post these over the next few days.
Leave a comment and let us know what’s on your foodie wish list this holiday season!
Liz Conant: “On my foodie wish list is a luxury outdoor gas grill, like this 53-inch ultra-premium model from Viking which comes complete with a rotisserie and an infrared burner (around $5,000). Next year? An outdoor kitchen with all the bells and whistles! (A girl can dream, right?)”
Kim Bedwell: “If someone REALLY wanted to give me the ultimate foodie gift, hands down it would be the Bacon of the Month Club from Zingerman’s. For $185, you get six months of delicious artisan bacon from across the U.S. including Arkansas Peppered Bacon and Tennessee Dry Cured.”
Cecily Fuller: “My life improved about tenfold a few months back when we stocked our office kitchen with a single serving coffee maker. I’m now officially hooked and have placed the Keurig Platinum Brewing System at the top of my foodie wish list this year. At $169 it’s a bit of a splurge, but we all need to treat ourselves to something nice over the holidays, right??”
