The Best Gifts for Food Lovers
For antique books and beautiful, vintage cookware and serving pieces, check out Greenwich Street Cookbooks run by Joanne Hendricks (gift certificates are also available). And for even more specialty and out-of-print cookbooks, visit Kitchen Arts and Letters, one of my favorite places in the city. I'm certain they can point you toward the ideal present.
Via Liddabit Sweets
Give brownies, loaf cakes, or hot cocoa mixes from Robicellis, or packages of lollipops, brittles, and caramels ($7/dozen) from the candy makers at Liddabit Sweets.
As our wine columnist reported a while back, Red Hook Winery was hit extremely hard by the storm and may not recover. Meanwhile, their inventory that wasn't damaged is available by the pack. Stocking up on a few two-bottle sets ($50), to take as hostess gifts to holiday parties, is a pretty great idea.
You can't go wrong with a gift card to The Brooklyn Kitchen good toward books, equipment, and classes.
